We parked in the car park right next to the beach and despite being windy the weather was fine.

Karen, Sophie and Dafydd played on the beach while I followed the sign posted path (Aikerskaill road) around the headland to the site of the ruined chapel. It is only a 5 minute walk.

The Souterrain was easy to spot; near the beach and blocked up with brieze blocks and stones.
It looks as though the Souterrain has been exposed due to coastal erosion?

A family of ducks paddled past, battling against the wind – good luck to them!

If you are ever in this area try to also take in a visit to the nearby St Ninian’s church (Hogg-back grave) and the Gloup sea cave – both worth a visit in their own right.
