Looks like the cave at the brough of deerness, about half a mile or so from the gloup.

Is it the entrance to the tunnel at the east side of Tankerness? - it's about 100m long and open at both ends.

Is it the cave at Hoxa?

This is one of a couple of caves at the back (most inland end) of the Gloup, below where the lower viewing platform is. The splashes in the water are from the trickle from the burn that runs into the Gloup.
