St Ninian's Cave

Scotland's first Saint, St Ninian, is said to have used this cave near Whithorn as a retreat around 397AD. I have to say that it would probably be better named St Ninian's alcove as the 'cave' todayu is only about 8ft deep. Successive winter storms have colapsed the outer part of the cave. Map location.
