Often the quality of an experience rests on the mercy of time and weather, and so it was with the Bone Caves. It was drizzly, windy, and overcast; the stream that accompanies the path to the caves was flowing high and at spots spilling over,...More

Just letting you know now, there are no bones. It's a decent walk that takes in large streams, waterfalls, fairy pools, roaring deer and steep steps. At the end of it, there are 4 moderately sized caves but there's no bones at the end of...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 54 no problem. If you are not used to walking it is a good introduction, though...More

What a magical, surprising and fae place. I had yet to visit a cave in Scotland (been seeing lots of stone circles, faerie mound and monroes). This was a great one to see!

This walk was one of the best ones I've ever done. Stunning views, great range of terrain under foot which I love.Some boggy places, pebbles, large rocks to climb over and some grassy areas. Make sure you are wearing the proper footwear! I was not....More

I don’t think I anticipated how harsh the cold wind would be. If I was properly dressed I think I would have enjoyed it more. If you have walking books bring them! Lovely waterfall on the way. Paths very uneven. When getting to the hill...More

The hike up to the caves is cool, but be prepared. Unless you have headlamps and clothes for crawling around on your belly in mud and gravel - you aren’t going to see much. If you go prepared, I am sure it is amazing. I...More

The bone caves are a pleasant walk along a glen from the car park. An interpretation board explains what there is to see. On your walk to the caves keep an eye on the river....after a short while you will see a "resurgence" - water...More

We choose this walk because there is a cave with bones (duh) and the headwaters of a river. There are places that were difficult for me to walk but the kids scrambled around like mountain goats. Really remote and gorgeous landscape. We missed the entrance...More

This walk is absolutely beautiful, and best of all as we started a cookoo was calling in the woods nearby. Not for the fainhearted it is quite a few km's to get there, but not a hard walk until the last bit over the rocks....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.
