Lead archaeologist Dr Gordon Noble described the find as "exceptional".
He said: "This is the most extreme archaeology I've ever done.
"The site can only be accessed using ropes at low tide and having never climbed before, it was quite hair-raising.

Story on BBC local news website for NE Scotland etc.

Aberdeenshire Council archaeologist Bruce Mann said: "The dates for this site are truly amazing, and hugely important for Scottish archaeology."
As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
