The Gloup, Isle of Stroma

The Gloup is a partially collapsed sea cave on the Isle of Stroma in the Pentland Firth. It stretches some 150m inland from the sea. It is said that islanders used it for smuggling. They allegedly concealed illegal distilling from the Customs by hiding the stills and alcahol in a cave within the Gloup, called "The Malt Barn". Map location.
