The great cave of Rubha Mhuirich, St Kilda
Continuing our circumnavigation of Hirta in the St Kilda archipelago, we came across the great cave of Rubha Mhuirich.
This huge cave is about 100m deep running straight into the cliffs. The MV Cuma was dwarfed by its scale
The light extended right to the back of the cave where there was a sandy beach. We could not land because of the amplification of the swells in the narrowing walls. One can only imagine the force of the ocean's fury in an Atlantic storm!
