Can anyone give me an idea how long does Cilan Head take to dry out after rain at this time of year, maybe with the help of a little sun?

Thanks

Which bit? Cilan is a line of cliffs about 2Km long! If you mean the main crag then I think you'd be lucky to find it dry as it's tucked in to a zawn. The crag with Path to Rome should dry quicker.

Being gritstone, as soon as the rain stops a bit of a breeze will soon dry much of the crag, but there are some persistent seeps. Anywhere in particular?

Dorys is a bit different, parts get very snappy when damp even if it looks dry. A good day baking in the sun hardens it up again, though I daresay we're on quite a low gas mark at the moment so you might want to give it longer.
