Western end of the Galtachan
Western end of the Galtachan
Galta Mr and a few tidal skerries to the west. A theory for the etymology is that it derives from a Norse word that is the root of 'gable' in English.

There is another tidal rock further to the west, Damhag, but it was still underwater at this stage of the tide.
