clanchief Posted December 18, 2007 Report Share Posted December 18, 2007 Does anyone know the location of "Hoidey Hols" that were used to hide from the Press Gang. I was privileged today to be shown "The Hol of Hellier" at Turvalds Head (West of Mavis Grind) . You crawl in on your belly (tight fit at the shoulders), but you can stand up inside, and I believe 12 people have in recent times been inside the cave at one time. From a quick bit of research, I have found mention of the following Hols :- "De Un" a cave at Ramnibanks ClumlieFury Geo - EshanessHoevdi Skord - BressayDa Muckle Hoidy Hol - Lunning HeadGlisiGeo - SandstingHoe Pool - Near SpiggieDa Wart a Mioness - SkerriesCati Geo - WatsnessDa Hoidy Hol - between Sullom and BuralandKettleback Cave - Isle of Uyea Has anyone ever been inside any of these places?
