The Cave of Gold

22 August: a beautiful bright, clear, sunny morning on Skye – perfect for a walk along airy clifftops with superb views to Lewis and Harris. It would be a good walk even if there wasn’t a cave of gold – the Uamh Oir – at the far end. The guide books say it’s inaccessible, as was the case today, but many years ago, at a low spring tide, we managed to get inside, to scramble along slippery rocks and retrieve the gold. So don’t bother trying…

A circular route would be perfectly possible, but further outings were planned for this fine day, and the most scenic route is to retrace one’s steps.
