Creag Nan Uamh

Cave / Rock Shelter


It is a very beautiful walk from the car park up the path which follows the Allt nan Uamh, south east, to the 'Crag of Caves' / Creag Nan Uamh or more famously the Bear Caves. As the Ts said the path isn't to difficult and superb views are to be had from the caves.

Allt nan Uamh is a source of amazement as well, near the caves, when we visited, there was no running water, about 200 meters, norh west, a small spring created a trickle, further down a much larger spring creates a burn and then at Fuaran Allt Nan Uamh it gets down to real business. Fortunately, for us, there was quite a bit more water on the go. As B and myself paddled in the wee pool less than a meter away the spring was creating a small river which gains momentum until it reaches the River Loanan, which eventually enters Loch Assynt.

No polar bears, brown bears or bears of any type, however the deer chorus of Achmore have followed us. What a racket!!

Beautiful place.
