“Must do if you around”
Reviewed November 9, 2011

That was a good unexpected surprize, we did the boat visit which was fun and cost nothing, it's an easy visit and not long.

“Caves with waterfall”
Reviewed October 26, 2011

We didn't get to go inside the cave because they were closed due to the highland games in Durness.
Still a nice place to stretch your legs.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed October 4, 2011

I have visited Smoo Cave twice. After the first visit I knew I had to have my family see it. Thus in August 2011 the family went. Family was also fascinated. The cave is on the ocean and is tidal: When the tide comes in forcefully there is a water spout from an opening in the cave roof; when it has rained there is a beautiful inside waterfall. Best for us was that the cave was lived in from 6000BC and the midden of shells from their seafood is easily seen.
Sometimes a boat ride through the cave is available.
