NARRATIVE ON PRINT - The Cove Haven is a favourite resort of the people of Arbroath. It derives its name from the cavern now and for long called the Masons' Cave. This cavern, about the most accessible of all the Arbroath caves, is 231 feet long, and from 12 to 14 feet wide. The Cove Haven was in the olden time the site of a fishing village, of which there is now no trace. There are some remains, however, of a much older construction—a small fort above the cave, and about a hundred feet above the level of the sea.

Between Cove Haven and Carlinheugh Head, a bold headland towards the north, stretches the broad bay of Carlinheugh, with its fine shingly beach, and into which the brook running through Seaton Den empties itself. In Carlinheugh Head are situated the Dark Cave, the Light Cave, and the Forbidden Cave. The 'floors' are the ridges of rock shown in the picture at ebb tide. (Notes by George Hay, 1883)
