Popular tradition asserts that the passage is connected to the Henhole on the north side of Cheviot, some 17 km distant, passing under the Hurle Stone. Locals also claim that, at one time, it linked Chillingham with Hepburn. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, one of the meanings of the word “cateran” is, brigand, freebooter or marauder, and it seems that a much more likely explanation of the steps into this cave is that it was once a smugglers’ hiding place.
