The Three Sisters






A short walk from Portencross village lies the cliff feature Ardneil Bank,part of the cliff is known as The Three Sisters , apparently quite a challenging rock climb.

Within the cliff lies the historic cave associated with St Kentigern better known as St Mungo, the story goes that he used the cave as a refuge from Glasgow,there was a well which at one time was a popular pilgrimage due its curative waters.

The cliff also has a fantastic echo ,even though the path is several hundred yards away the echo is amazing.

Beautiful photos and very interesting too, also the legend. I have never been there as far as I can remember. I'd like to hear that echo - must make a trip there in future.
