Attraction Information

Inchnadamph Caves, also known as the Bone Caves, can be reached via a beautiful and popular walk in a limestone valley with a secret to share! The whole walk will take you up to 2 hours, and leads along the valley floor, until it narrows and you climb the steep sides to reach the dramatic Bone Caves! So lace up your boots and get walking!

These 4 north facing Bone Caves of Inchnadamph offer a unique glimpse back in time, revealing what animals lived here during the last 45,000 years. From arctic polar bears and northern lynx, to the hyenas and hippos of warmer climes, many different animals have left their mark on the Bone Caves of Creag nan Uamh!

There is a good 2km (1 mile) path from the car park at the fish hatchery to the Bone Caves but it does go over some rough and steep ground so keep your eyes peeled as you walk. Also, although the caves' entrance chambers may be examined standing up, care should be taken at the rear of Reindeer Cave where it drops down to a crawl way, as you don't want to lose the kids down there!

Historic Scotland has designated the caves as an Ancient Monument, and Scottish National Heritage as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Please Note that the postcode offered is for SAT NAV purposes only to get you into the area, it will not get you right to the caves, please plan your trip in advance.
