|Description ||Gateholm. Of the 2 features shown on OS maps (settlement and cairn), the rounded features in the centre and right of this photo are visible from the coastal path with reasonable binoculars. |
The rock fall which is evident on the picture is just to the south of the point on the COFLEIN aerial photo where there seems to be a partial defensive arc – perhaps this was once a potential access point before this section of cliff fell away.
There are many examples along this stretch of coast where ancient sites have been severely eroded, making interpretation very difficult.
