Mysterious Cave House Discovered in Scotland

In a story somewhat reminiscent of the magnificent Perforating Mexicans, a mysterious dwelling has been discovered in a sea-side cliff near the town of Arbroath, Scotland.

According to the BBC:

"The [Arbroath authorities were] investigating reports of cries for help coming from local caves on Tuesday.

After scouring the area they spotted a rope ladder which led into a cave house built into the rocks.

The dwelling, about half way up the 120ft cliffs, contained a floor, painted walls, seating, tea lights and several beer cans.

No-one was home at the time.

I've seen those cliffs -- it's completely believable that someone's hidden in there, living. But boy, they're hard to scale!

Anonymous2: Not to sound weird, but how old are you? My tonsils started to swell when I was 7, but now that I am 12 they are starting to go down. They do shrink, but slowly. Mine where so huge that the dentist said that I had the biggest tonsils that they had ever seen, and they see a lot of tonsils.

Anyway, this is pretty sweet. But you said someone was calling for help? Do you think they held someone hostage there? That would be weird.

I wish I could go there. I think at the time investigators were there, the person was probably hiding in a secret passage. I am so interested in caves, underground, cliffs and those mysterious things.

If that was their home, why do you suppose they cried for help?

What if they were ghosts that used to be children that had gotten trapped and made a house before they died?! And they were crying for help, 'cause they were trapped in time! Poor dears!
