Thanks Gerard. Yes, the Gate' explanation is one possibility. I had come up with 'Droim Géise' - ' the ridge of the swan' because 'géis ' occurs in other placenames and could mean there were swans there at some stage - unlikely in this case,,I would think. It could also mean that the feature lòked like the shape of a swan. All explanations equally plausible and implausible.

Re 'Geisha Steps' - I think it's actually 'Gate of Steps' (or something to that effect) and was a local name given to that spot as there may have been a gate there one time.

Thanks to Toss for a challenging but very satisfying walk (climb?) Yesterday. It was superb.
Can anybody explain the origin of the name 'Geisha Steps'?
