Smoo Cave is located at the eastern edge of the village of Durness, on Scotland's most northerly coastline. It is a dramatic location and on the only primary road in the area, the A838 Durness to Tongue.  A trip to Smoo Cave has to be included in any stay in Durness. Set into limestone cliffs, Smoo Cave is quite large - 200 feet long, 130 feet wide, and 50 feet high at the entrance. The cave is a great tourist attraction for people visiting the north-west coast, and is well worth a visit.

 

Currently moves are being undertaken to improve the facilities and develop the site for interpretation and safety. This site will develop and along with providing information about the Cave will inform of the proposed developments

NC 419672, situated at the head of a narrow inlet, Geodha Smoo which runs inland for about 600 meters Smoo is the largest and most dramatic coastline cave in Britain. This spectacular site has a rich archeological history, an interesting geological formation and is abundant in wildlife.
