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 an 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.

  2. Caves both intrigue and intimidate me! (I'm not good in small closed spaces!) But still I have ventured into caves to see the wonders beneath the earth! Adored the magical Malakoopa Caves in Tasmania. Love the shadowy textures of the rocks in your photo!

  5. How fascinating that shafts are being rediscovered/ I love it that humans keep rediscovering things, that there's always something new on the horizon of learning.
