Uamh An Ard Achadh
Uamh An Ard Achadh
Discovered in 1972 by students from the University of London Speleological Society, Uamh An Ard Achadh (High Pasture Cave) lies approximately 1km south east of Torrin in a shallow valley on the north side of Beinn an Dubhaich. The cave contains around 320m of accessible passages making it the second longest cave complex on Skye. This photograph shows the archeological work taking place on the site following a discovery in 2005 of the remains of three humans in the cave, together with artefacts suggesting it was an important burial site.
The cave passages are formed in Cambrian Durness Limestone.
