Sea Cave. Conspicuous waterfall seen there, where Allt Srathain falls over mouth of cave into sea. Semi-circular entrance of height 12-15 m. Floor of shingle and pebbles (cave assumed to be intertidal).

Alternate Names: Allt an t-Strathain Sea Cave, Geodha an t-Strathain

Notes: Needs better coordinates (NC 49090 63915 from Google Earth NC 49086 63928 from pastmap OS 10k background mapping, 'where Allt Srathain falls over mouth of cave into sea').

Probably the same cave as Allt an t-Strathain Sea Cave, which has the same vague coordinates. SNH lists this as O4 (Oldham 4).
