Full Description

NC80SE 20 85 00.

There is a cave in the hill above Dunrobin from which tradition says there is a subterranean passage extending 4 Scotch miles to the S side of Little Ferry. Explorers have been forced to give it up by the roughness underfoot and the wet.
OSA 1799.

No further information obtained. Visited by OS (E G C) 7 4 1962.

From lack of local information of a cave fitting this description and siting, that at NC 8360 0295 (see NC80SW 8) may well be the one in question.
Visited by OS (J M) 28 August 1975.
