Gary Latter book comprehensive and WRONG ;) Beware. Awesome climbing on the Financial Sector and Poverty Point.
Fiend - 26/Sep/10

Great climbing in the lower grades at Poverty Point and Destitution Point. Very scenic with immaculate rock. Giro E2 5c at Destitution is amazing. Garry Latter book very comprehensive.

This site is a mess. No buttresses listed and nothing in order. I just corrected 4 spelling mistakes. The Pedantic PP

The 'new climb' photo appears to be have been named Gloominous from the SC description, but it was not a FA, so the name may change http://routes.scottishclimbs.com/viewcrag.php?area=4&crag=125

Lancs Lad - 26/Jun/06

Nicola and I have added four short routes to the first bit of rock on the right as you head down the steps. There good for a warm up on the way down to the longer sea wall routes. Take care as some of the rock is loose. Theres no toilets etc at Neist and the lighthouse is a private B and B, so best to not annoy people here. The grassy area before the Lighthouse would make a nice area for kids to play on, also walks on clifftop look worthwhile for views. Its an ok family venue apart from lack of facilities. Ive a photo top of the 4 new routes if any gets out there, comments on the new routes welcome
