Not to be taken lightly as the seas here can be very dangerous!

A long wild sea tunnel that leads out into a huge deep hole in a field! It was once a sea cave, but the end collapsed, leaving the "gloup" as some call it these days. Possible to swim through the cave and reach the small rocky bay inside, like a huge natural ampitheatre. Climbing up is possible but tricky as very steep - good sole grip required.

From Auchmithie harbour it is possible to swim south, about 2km to reach the entrance. Care to be taken, please only attempt on very good conditions and with kayak/boat support. Land can be seen from sea, so you know it's the right tunnel - other caves in area, can be deceptive.
