Hole of Horcum

Carved by flood waters from the last ice age, the Hole of Horcum is a wonderful sight.

It forms a natural amphitheater, with a  narrow valley at its head which acts as an echo chamber. At this time of year, the heather contrasts well with the green grass and trees which flank the hillsides.

The entrance to the valley channels sounds.

And one persistent sheep echoed out.
