Field Visit (1 April 2015)

This cave is new only in the sense that it has not previously been recorded as one of the Wemyss Caves. It is located on the NE side of the Fife Coastal Path near the foot of the steps leading to Macduff Castle, about 40m from the shoreline. It is about 8m deep and 1.3m high at best.

Visited by Scotland's Coastal Heritage at Risk (SCHARP) 2015
