The higher and more westerly of 2 caves on the cliff line behind the barn. A climb up to a 3m high entrance and chamber, with smaller passages at the back. It contained fragments of prehistoric pottery which are discussed in Ruiz Cobo Jesús and Smith Peter et al, 2001. In 2012, the entrance chamber was found to have the floor covered with tiny bones, presumably the remains of birds meals or pellets.
