Entrances to North and South Seals Caves
Entrances to North and South Seals Caves
This bit of coast is just round the headland, called Arthur Fowlie, the first one south of Bullers of Buchan.
The large opening on the right is that of North Seals. It has a fairly spacious passage going in about 60m or so. Its walls are coloured by red and green growths above the high tide line.
The one further away on the mid left and tilted right is South Seals. Its entrance is narrow and it is hard to get into. Once in, it is a large (154m long), spacious cave used by seals and also shags. See NK1137 : Entrance to South Seals Cave for a closeup of the entrance.
On the skyline, at the left, there is the cleft which leads down to the entrance of a third seacave, Petrie's Hole. It is about 45m long.
