The Bone caves

General view of the Bone Caves

The Bone Caves are a group of four caves about three miles South-East of Inchnadamph. It is thought that they were formed towards the end of the last ice-age by melt waters percolating through the lime-stone in the area.

There was an excavation of one of the caves in 1889. a further excavation in 1926 and 1927.

Bones found in these caves include those of wild cat, lynx, bear, reindeer and of four humans.
