The entrance to Petrie's Hole
The entrance to Petrie's Hole
The OS namebook has "A small cave, situated on the south side of the South Seals Cave." I think "smaller" would be more accurate as it is certainly more than 40 m long. Inside it goes straight, and in places, quite narrow until a wider part ending in a vertical faced pillar. There is a short narrow tunnel to the right of this, and a longer one off to the left. Like the other caves to the immediate north, it is used by seals.
