From his comment right at the end it sounds as if Pete's ideal training facility is the 'Smorgas Board'™.

Looks like gneiss rather than granite. UKC logbooks also state gneiss.

Isn't gneiss a form of granite?

Short answer: not really

Longer answer: lots of gneiss is formed from the the recrystalisation of granite, so it can have granitic origins (but wouldn't really be defined as a granite) but some gneiss is formed from sedimentary rocks. You need to look at the mineralogy to tell. I've no idea about the geology of Flananger.
