Cave View - 3

This time we're inside Breackan's Cave on Jura looking out to Scarba and the Corryvreakan Whirlpool. Martin Martin wrote this of Corryvreckan and the cave: This gulf hath its name from Brekan, said to be son to the King of Denmark, who was drowned here, cast ashore in the north of Jura, and buried in a cave, as appears from the stone, tomb, and altar there. I found no tomb or altar inside the cave, but there was a large rectangular slab of stone that may have once marked a grave.

Next time we'll head over to Staffa to peer out of Fingal's Cave.
