Inchnadamph National Nature Reserve and Bone Caves

Name from "innis" - a pasture and "damh" - an ox. (Gaelic)
Resting place for cattle during the drives to market in Falkirk.

This reserve covers some 3200 acres of the plateau which lies between Loch Assynt and ben More Assynt.
Popular with walkers, climbers and botanists and geologists, too, this area is world famous for its limestone scenery, caves and all. The best of the limestone pavements can be seen up the valley of the Traligill Burn (NC 275205).

The caves, in times long past, attracted animals such as brown bear, polar bear, arctic fox, lemming and lynx, remains of which have been found in the Bone Caves above Allt Nan Uamh, (NC 268170), some 2 miles south of Inchnadamph Hotel.

There is an excellent hostel, too, Inchnadamph Lodge, which can accommodate up to 50 people in rooms of various sizes, in addition to being able to provide for the needs of families. The Assynt Field Centre attached has facilities for field study trips, conferences etc.
