Sea Cave. Large triangular entrance 6 m. high, 8 m wide, on the shore below a corner turret behind the Old Stables at the top of a 30 m cliff. Reduces quickly to 2.5 m high and narrows to 1.5 m wide with past wave action forming pseudo-vadose passage. Visible length approximately 6-8 m. Stooping crawl under perched boulder leads to 2 m more passage with cobbled floorrsing as passage narrows to become too tight.

Alternate Names: None recorded.

Notes: Probably possible to access this cave along the rocky shore from the east even at high tide except in extreme weather condition but large boulders may cause some problems. Easier at low tide when possible to skirt the rocks and aproach from the foreshore to the north.

Small cleft in cliff to north (NS 23411 10366) behind heavy vegetation investigated 2019. No enterable passage.
