Did you know these facts about Pringle Bay?

  • Pringle Bay was named after Rear Admiral Thomas Pringle in 1797
  • It is famous for its rocky shores and the cave, “Drostersgat”, which was used by prisoners and runaway slaves as a hide-away in the 18th century.
  • The cave is on private ground – it is difficult to find, in a steep inlet washed by the sea and entrance can only be gained by letting yourself down by rope between the slanting rock walls – an isolated and daunting place.
  • A resident of nearby Onrus in the 1890′s had visited the cave at Pringle Bay and found skeletons, the remains of game and proof of fires.
