The Dunton Cove is located on a rock cliff above the Craigendunton Water, just off a track leading through the forest to Craigendunton. Access is difficult, and at the visitor's own risk.

Dunton Cove


The Dunton Cove is a man-made cave in the sandstone rocks above the Craigendunton Water. It was used as a hideout by Covenanters. Although the entrance to the 'cove' or cave is fairly obvious today, apparently the Covenanters cut down a bush and pulled it up with a rope to hide the entrance - making it look like a bush growing naturally from the rocks.
