Monks Cave, Charles Hill, Aberdour

On the Charles Hill promontory near Aberdour and overlooking the Firth of Forth is the Monk’s Cave. This was used as a storehouse for Monks on Inchcolm Abbey and also a resting place while they waited on a ferry to Inchcolm Island. The cave was used as a storage site for the Charles Hill Battery as part of the coastal defence base which was created in the 1940s to act as an anti submarine force protecting ships at anchor and Rosyth Dockyard.

From the cave, which sits atop a high point, there is a good view of Inchcolm Island and the Braefoot Terminal and a panoramic view of the Firth of Forth to the Bass Rock in the East and the Forth Bridges to the West.
