Can anyone advise me of the location of these? I'm heading to Arrochar next weekend and would like to explore them but online i can only find a rough description of where they are.

any help would be much appreciated. :D

Head up the Succoth road. Pass the shooting club, and they're up on the left. The sound of the waterfall will guide you. There are two large caves, the upper requires some scrambling ability to get to. Go through the squeeze at the back to get to an underground loch. There's dozens of other smaller caves and howffs. I'll not say more, much of the joy comes in the discovery.

When I was a young boy my father took me up to the caves in this area.
When he cycled around this area he used to stay overnight in the caves though I don't recall whereabouts they were,used to think my father was brave as I thought at the time there was bears and wolves, imagination runs wild when your young.
