Garheugh Point

Climbs 42 – Rocktype Greywacke – Altitude 2m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
Small and steep with some loose bits. On the seashore but no birds and mainly non tidal.

Some excellent bouldering on several large boulders, some tidal at high tides. Mostly south facing and quick to dry

The above passage is confusing i.e. "non tidal" in the 1st section then "some tidal" in the 2nd.

Some fantastic bouldering in a gorgeous setting. By the sounds of things it doesn't get much traffic, but nevertheless the south-facing rock is clean, sound and very nice to climb. If you're looking to stay in the area I can also recommend Hawthorn House in Port William as an excellent B&B!
