The Bone Caves of Inchnadamph

Assynt - a wild, rugged and incredibly ancient landscape. Bleak and rocky, yet with beautiful sandy beaches and strange, lonely mountains that stand out like giants in a landscape of rock, moor and countless lochans. Even the name Assynt, derived from an Old Norse word meaning ‘ridge end’, reflects this harsh, rocky terrain.

This is a landscape virtually untouched by man, but where the rocks most definitely have their stories to tell. Stories that are so ancient, and yet so visible in the rock itself that the whole area has been designated part of the North West Highlands Geopark, itself part of both the European and UNESCO Global Geopark Networks.

We were staying in Ullapool and had been told of the remarkable remains that had been found in caves at Inchnadamph - the Bone Caves. That seemed a strange name; but then this was a strange landscape. We learned that thanks to the discovery of ancient bones in these four hillside caves, archaeologists have been able to unravel 45,000 years of life in this area, back to a distant past when bears, wolves, reindeer, lynx, arctic lemmings and even polar bears roamed the land.
