Description

A small zawn with big atmosphere. The name comes from the seals, who like to gather in this area, and whose ghostly calls echo round the zawn.

Getting There

Difficult to describe...

Follow the West coast footpath for some 500m North of three quarter wall, where a series of grassy gullies descend seawards. One one of these (the penultimate one, walking Northwards) has a curious shaped block on it's left wall, reminiscent of the Easter Island statues. Follow this gully to its end then turn right, traversing beneath a rocky outcrop.

The zawn is pretty much directly beneath this outcrop, and the most popular routes are accessed by abseil to a ledge on the South side of the zawn, right at the mouth. Make sure to direct the abseil down the outside of the zawn in order to hit the ledge, else you may be left hanging.
