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

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

Visited this Easter - great valley walk with a small uphill track to the caves! Spectacular scenery including plenty of geographical features for those wishing to see some limestone features! Stunning in the snow too! Took about 2 hours in total at a steady pace!...More

One of the most beautiful walks ibhavd ever been on in Scotland. A 4 km treck up the mountain to see the caves. Around the half way mark one could see the birthplace of a natural spring water that gushes through the valleys into a...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

Path is excellent and well maintained. Still need good shoes. Scenery is beautiful and you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere very quickly. From 7 to 50 no problems.

I stumbled over this walk while researching things to do on our trip to the area. There is a car park which could probably hold 12 to 15 cars, which will be adequate most of the time. The walk takes about two hours, and includes...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.
