What a magical, surprising and fae place. I had yet to visit a cave in Scotland (been seeing lots of stone circles, faerie mound and monroes). This was a great one to see!

I don’t think I anticipated how harsh the cold wind would be. If I was properly dressed I think I would have enjoyed it more. If you have walking books bring them! Lovely waterfall on the way. Paths very uneven. When getting to the hill...More

The hike up to the caves is cool, but be prepared. Unless you have headlamps and clothes for crawling around on your belly in mud and gravel - you aren’t going to see much. If you go prepared, I am sure it is amazing. I...More

The bone caves are a pleasant walk along a glen from the car park. An interpretation board explains what there is to see. On your walk to the caves keep an eye on the river....after a short while you will see a "resurgence" - water...More

This walk is absolutely beautiful, and best of all as we started a cookoo was calling in the woods nearby. Not for the fainhearted it is quite a few km's to get there, but not a hard walk until the last bit over the rocks....More

The caves are at 350 meters and the walk starts from 138m, so the total ascent is only 212 meters. However the last section is a litle steep, but with a good path. Quite suitable for a family walk.
