This beautiful and popular walk leads up a limestone valley to visit the dramatic Bone Caves. These cave openings on a steep slope at the foot of a cliff have been excavated and were found to contain the remains of species such as lynx, reindeer and polar bear which once roamed the area.


Clear path which is rough, narrow and steep at times near the caves. The insides of the caves themselves can be wet and slippery.

Public Transport

Car park on the A837 between Elphin and Inchnadamph. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
