Inchnadamph Bone Caves
The cave entrances, at the top of the green slope, are in shadow most of the day. They must have been formed by the action of water, but erosion has cut the glen down through them, leaving them high and dry. On the other side of Creag nan Uamh ('Crag of the Caves') cavers have recently found and excavated a shaft leading down into a large cave system, including a chamber of impressive dimensions. The longest cave system in Scotland is accessed from Uamh an Claonite nearby.
