View from inside the 'Cave of the Roaring' looking down Traligill towards the distant outline of Quinag. Apart from the location of the caves and the waters therein, I'm also puzzled by the valley names of Traligill. It suggests to me a Norse influence and is not dissimilar to Trallval mountain on Rum, which apparently got its name because Viking settlers/explorers were convinced that the weird night time noises coming from the mountain were made by trolls [and not the native shearwaters]. Maybe these same big hairy warriors were also slightly nervous of trolls in the Traligill caves? Such wimps! No trolls were seen within the caves on my visit.
