It's a good spot, although quite a trial to get to through the gorse and brambles. There are three I think, but varying sizes and depths. All round the edges of the rock. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

I went here too this year! I thought it was excellent. I could swear there is an antiquarian drawing of the holes somewhere. But I've not been able to find it at all. It was so fantastically licheny and the holes were very deep. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon

Small world,etc :)

Maybe William Borlase? He'd bound to have been there a-sketching, especially as there are Borlases buried in Zennor churchyard.
