Uamh nan Claig-ionn (Appin)



Note that most Appin caves lie within forestry plantations. New access roads for tree felling tend to appear, and fresh planting may obscure many cave entrances.

It is the policy of the Forestry Commission to provide open access for sporting activities in its forests, and no prior permission is required for sport caving.
