Milldown Bay

Milldown & Weasel Loch.png

To the south of Coldingham Bay, the smaller and more secluded shingle bay is accessed along the coastal path and offers more fantastic snorkelling opportunities. Cracks and crevices in the rocks provide homes for urchins, anemones and edible crabs, whilst kelp beds provide shelter for juvenile fish including saithe, butterfish and scorpionfish. An advanced site due to its relative remoteness.
