High up in Bishopscourt Glen is a lovely small cave with a carved stone seat. This cave is thought to have been used by bishops for the purpose of rest and meditation. Bishop Murray reputedly took refuge here from angry locals at the time of the 1825 potato (tithe) riots. Nearby is a stone called “Creg Nyn Ushag” (Rock of the Bird) which is inscribed ‘Lead me to the rock that is higher than I’, probably dating from about 1880.
