Seacliff winch0002

The Laird of Auldhame in 1890, had a tiny harbour cut out of the Gegan, a rocky outcrop lying on the low exposed ledges below Seacliff. The channel access is narrow and scoured by strong currents making its use extremely tricky even in good weather. Since the Gegan is cut off at high tide it seems an odd place to build a harbour and at present seems to be used by the crew of a single creel boat, the Sulaire. This view shows the remains of a rusting winch, which frames Tantalon Castle just up the coast.
