On the coast of Fife in Scotland close to East Wemyss and a short distance from Macduff Castle are a set of coastal caves. These caves were created some 5,000 to 8,000 years ago but people have been visiting and using these caves for thousands of years. Etched into the cave walls are carvings dating back 4,000 years to the Bronze Age but most of the carvings date back to the Dark Ages and were created by the Picts.
These caves have the largest concentration of Pictish cave carvings in Britain. After the Picts used the caves Christian pilgrims and hermits used the caves and left their marks on the walls. There are also Viking carvings depicting Norse Gods; Thor with his hammer followed by the sacred goat; Freya, portrayed by the goose and Odin by the trumpet form.
The caves are under the guardianship of Save Wemyss Ancient Caves Society, who run informative tours on the first Sunday of each month. They are contactable via their webpage. Alternatively, you can explore the caves yourself. If driving, park at the east end of the village and follow the advice of the information boards opposite to locate them.
There are a number of caves including Court Cave, Dovecot Cave, Well Caves, Jonathan’s Cave, Sliding Cave and Gasworks Cave.
