Scotland Boulder aka Haystack Boulder
BETA PHOTO: View from the short approach.
Perhaps this is the Northernmost bouldering in Massachusetts? A single, large, granite block offers a multitude of problems and eliminates in the V0-V3 range up to 15 feet in height.
The boulder is located on the southern edge of Newburyport just off Route I-95. Take I-95 to Exit 56. From the south, take a right off the off-ramp onto Scotland Road. From the North, take a left off the off-ramp onto Scotland Road. Take Scotland Road just a few hundred yards to a small dirt parking lot on the right (just across the street from the State Police). There is a sign for the Downfall Wildlife Management Area. Follow the trail from the sign 200 yards into the woods to the boulder. You can't miss it!
