Three seacaves under Fowls Heugh
Three seacaves under Fowls Heugh
The double entrances in the shadow on the right are two tunnels of one cave (because they are under a 20m overhang) called Spurnell's Cove. The left one of this is longer and the total tunnel length is 95m. A bit short of the OS namebook description " of which is said to extend nearly a mile". The two caves to left of centre are quite small - in the 20 to 30m range - and low ceiling-ed. All three caves are used as haul-outs by seals. Common in the summer, grey in autumn to about February.
