Court Cave, Wemyss Caves, Fife
In the days of the Livingstones and Colvilles, who owned Macduff Castle from the 15th Centuries, the 'Baron's Courts' were held in this cave. Other people trace its name to the time when King James V, disguised as the 'Guidman of Ballengeich' had an incident with the gypsies who were in the Cave at the time.

The drawings of the Norse god Thor and his sacred goat, and the cup markings are in the passage by the main entrance. There are also a number of other markings in this cave which have been partly fenced off as it may be dangerous to enter.
