Crag features

Gogarth meets Sheigra. The crag consists of a very steep west facing 40m wall and a couple of south facing stepped walls (aka The Burnished Walls). Despite some big guano ledges no sea birds appear to nest on the Main Wall (probably too scared), but on The Burnished Walls there are a few shags right of Rolling Foam and the odd fulmar on a grassy ledge.

Approach notes

Approach 40 minutes, but may take a bit longer the first time!

Although it doesn

Shags nesting under Rolling Foam et al again this year. Best avoided until late in the year.
