Cave of Gold

Kilmuir

The Uamh Oir or Cave of Gold is Skye's answer to Fingal's cave on Staffa. It gives a delightful short walk and is a great place for a picnic; however the final the pathless coastal slope down to it is very steep and dangerous, requiring great care.

Terrain - The walk crosses rough croft pasture land; if you really must take a dog it should be kept on a short lead. The descent to see the cave is down an extremely steep grass slope which could be dangerous in the wet.

Grade 2

Distance 2.25km (1.4 miles)

Ascent 68m (223ft)
