The walk was great and very clear following the map and guide I got online. Unfortunately I have a problem with balance and the path up to the cave was a bit narrow and steep. I did make it but did not enjoy the experience....More

Lovely easy walk in and a little bit of a precarious final climb but definitely worth the effort. See if you can spot the river that just appears out of nowhere .

The walk up the river gorge is amazing - you even see a river being born and bubbling up from underground.

The bone cave was close to one of NC500 stops Ullapool, a short drive, about 30 mins. Car park available at start of the walk but make sure you keep an eye for the very small faded sign, we recognised by seeing other cars parked....More

Firstly, unless you are an expert hillclimber with appropriate safety gear then do not attempt the climb up to these caves in windy weather as it's quite treacherous. We visited on a sunny but extraordinarily windy day. It was pretty hard going agiainst the wind...More

We went as a couple as our teenage children wanted to chill in our cottage for the day. The walk was fairly easy but you need reasonable footwear as it is quite rocky and uneven in places. There is a pretty little waterfall early on...More

From the car park by the roadside the walk to the bone caves passes a resurgence where water from underground comes to the surfcace. In summer months, during dry spells, the river bed is dry around here but looks very strange as water comes out...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.
