Smoo Cave **

In this region: <<<<<  >>>>>

Description:

This spectacular sea cave is set into the limestone cliffs and is situated around a mile to the east of Durness.

The cave boasts one of the largest entrances to any sea cave in Britain at 50 ft high and is floodlit inside. It was formed by a burn that runs down into the rear chamber, as well as erosion caused by the sea. You are virtually walking towards a giant mouth. Inside the cave, there is a covered wooden pathway and bridge taking the visitor to a magnificent cascade that falls 25 meters into an 8 meter deep pool.
