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.

Pat,

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'?

I had such a fantastic day on Sunday and so amazed at the kindest people showed as we made our way of the Galtee Mountains.

It was my second open mountain hike (the first was Cush on the previous Wednesday ) my longest and most challenging hike to date. 2 days on and I am still buzzing.
I admit, I thought I wouldn't be able for it but with the right words of encouragement from fellow hikers , sweepers and of course the lovely ladies at the beginning, made me that little bit more confident about what I was facing.
