  • Smoo Cave, near Durness
    Smoo Cave, near Durness

Visit the caves in Scotland and admire these amazing natural features which have fascinating stories to tell.

Smoo Cave in the Highlands is one of Britain's most famous sea caves, and a marvellous sight to behold. Rich in archaeological history, this attraction is also a great place to find some of the region’s wildlife.

At Esha Ness in Shetland lies Calders Geo, an impressive sea cave which some geologists claim to be the largest sea cave in the British Isles. At over 18 m tall and spanning a floor area of 5,600 square metres, it's one-and-a-half times the size of the biggest cave at Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, England.

St Ninian’s Cave is believed to have been used by Scotland’s first saint, who brought Christianity to Scotland. Found near Whithorn in Dumfries & Galloway, the cave has carvings on the walls which date back to the eighth century and remains an important place for pilgrims today.
