039 A large cave, situated on the Seal Shore, was once a place of great note but a portion of earth & rock has fallen in at the mouth of the cave which has completely closed it.
Dropping Cave of Slains. This remarkable cave is among the chief natural curiosities of the district. The Countess of Erroll, in her historical notice of Buchan, says; "The things most remarkable in Buchan seem to be - 1. The Parish of Forvie, which is wholly overblown with sand; 2 The Dropping Cave of Slains; 3 Bullers - Buchan near the Bownes; 4 The well of Peterhead; 5 The multitude of Selchs that come in at Strathbegge; 6 Eagles which build in the Craigs of Pennan.
The entrance to this cave is low, but the interior is lofty and capacious, and was formerly remarkable for the number and beauty of its stalactites; these, however, have of late years greatly diminished.
