Bone Caves circuit, near Inchnadamph

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beautiful and popular walk in a limestone valley to the dramatic bone caves. These cave openings part way up a steep side of the valley are where the remains have been found of species such as lynx, reindeer and polar bear which once roamed here.


Straightfoward walk on a clear path which is narrow and steep at times near the caves. The insides of the caves themselves can be wet and slippery.
