The Ness beach is known to have been used by smugglers in the past. Some think that the tunnel used to access the beach today was built by them, hence it's name Smugglers Tunnel, however another rumour is that it was actually created by the owners of nearby Ness House in the 1800's so that they could access the beach. Whatever it's oringinal purpose it's a wonderful way to get to the beach, with it's dark entrance and windy path through the heart of the cliff ending with a wonderful view down onto the beach as you exit at the other end.
