A hidden slab in the headland of Gob a'Gheodha just north of the sandy bay at Slaggan. Close to the sea but not tidal.

Directions & Approach

Grid Ref: NG 835947

From Slaggan, go through the gate and take the path that passes right of the solitary gable ends and heads towards the beach. Where it branches, take the path that heads north along the top of the grassy cliffs, passing through another gate, until a rocky headland is reached, continue to the wooden cross and rusty metal supports. Wander down the slope, heading over the top of the deep slot of Gob Geo, and walk down a sloping ramp curving right. Near the end of the ramp and close to the sea, the slab will be on the right.
