View inland.

Described by the surveyors of the Ordnance Survey as: "a large rock about 100 feet square having a natural gothic arch thro' it, and through which runs the flow and ebb of the tide. The arch will admit of a common sized man to walk upright under it. It is situated on the sea coast of the farm of Powillimount, and is considered to be one of the greatest curiosities along this Coast."
