Location of Devil's Limekiln

Devil's Limekiln

The Devil's Limekiln is a sea cave, open to the air at its inner end. There is a similar cave, "Seals' Hole" further east which has not yet broken through but ends in a large chamber estimated at over 30m high. The pyramidal Shutter Rock (visible in the photo) which forms the south west point of the island is supposed to be an exact fit for the funnel-shaped Devil's Limekiln.
