Looking towards Port nan Giuran.

The OS Name Book of 1848-1852 says of what was then spelled Gob cha leig, "A low rocky shore forming a part of the northern boundary of Portnagiuran Farm. NB The name is derived from the words "we can't weather it" i.e. if the wind is in a certain direction the fishermen in their boats are not able to pass the shore without making another tack".
