Portheras Cove - surfing
Portheras picks up plenty of swell but also has the advantage of facing almost due north. What this means is it is cross offshore in the prevailing south-westerly wind. So, on paper, it should be fairly consistent
From what I know this isn't really the case for one reason or another. It does occasionally have a quality shorebreak on a high tide and is popular with local body-boarders. It is also a very heavy wave so be warned!
