Smoo Cave and Headland

We decided as it’s Easter Sunday we would stay put at Sango Sands another day and explore the area.

After brunch in the van we wandered along the coast to Smoo cave. The cave system was made by both the sea and the Smoo River and is still being explored by local cavers convinced that there is another cave system with a large quantity of water awaiting their discovery. Lots of pairs of roosting gulls on the sides of the cave entrance making a racket too. The cave is dark and damp and the usual waterfall is merely a trickle. Tony joins a cave tour, with his hard hat on. It starts with a short boat ride further into the cave and then a walk around other chambers. I enjoy a kindle moment and eat love hearts from Amanda and Nic’s wedding.

We then stroll up to the headland for wonderful views up and down the coast.

On the way back we call into Durness Village hall which strangely has a John Lennon memorial as he used to holiday here as a teenager.


Attempt almost a roast lamb dinner in the van which isn’t bad at all and pop open a bottle.IMG_20190421_213319-1843x909
