The Bone Caves hiking trail is a perfect way to spend a couple of hours getting out of the car after travelling for 2 days. The hike has spectacular views and has both easy and a bit more challenging sections to please every hiker.

gentle climb up to the valley, following a river that disappears! There are several resurgences where the water reappears.

Fascinating place to visit, a bit of a walk up, but by a pretty River and the caves themselves are wonderful.

Fabulous little walk. Taking it steady, due to man flu, this took us three hours there and back. It's a fascinating walk in a hidden valley to the very atmospheric caves in the cliff face. Along the way, there's a waterfall and a spring that...More

The meandering walk up to the path that leads you to the caves is just so lovely. After a quick, and in my case, slightly challenging scramble up a hill, the views from the bone caves are worth it. Apparently you can go through a...More

Not surprising that we only saw two other people on this walk as it is so badly signed. It is 2 miles south of Inchnadamph, and starts at a carpark at the entrance to which is a wooden signpost. Very easy miss - we drove...More

I was convinced I was heading to the Bone Caves as Trip Advisor's map shows it as a mile South of Ullapool, the Bond Caves are nowhere near there - I know it's a small technical hitch but very frustrating for tourists !

Lovely walk, though the path up to and down from the caves is steep and narrow if you have younger kids. The history of the caves is more interesting than the caves themselves but if you bring your imagination it adds a lot to what...More

This path is clearly marked, but we only saw two other people hiking it that day (it's a hidden treasure!) There are a couple of ways to get to the top: one that's steeper than the other, but both are very manageable. The hike starts...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.
