Arial view of Smoo Cave filmed August 202
The tour begins in the main chamber and from there we can walk across the wooden walkway through to the Lake (or waterfall) Chamber where you need to climb down some ladders to enter a river raft. From there I take you around / across the lake chamber and into the 'third section' where we get out of the boat and walk up a natural stream passage (using stepping stones where required) to reach the inlet sump. Rather than follow the cave underwater, we then turn around and head back to the main chamber. Throughout this you will learn all about the geological and human history of the cave.
The site is owned and maintained by Highland Council who have provided the following public facilities along the cliff top:
- Public toilets
- Picnic / interpretation area
- Viewing bridge over the sinkhole waterfall
- Car park
- Coach park (further along road)
