Smoo Cave Tour summer 2020​ update

North Coast View Orig

As things stand at the moment Smoo Cave Tours will not be running the inner cave tour this summer.  It’s with deep regret that after running the tours every summer for over 30 years now that we will be unable to safely operate this summer.  Our number 1 commitment has always been YOUR safety.  It is impossible to run our intimate tour safely at the moment so although financially crippling, this has to be the decision.

Thanks to everyone for their generous donations on our Just Giving page.  We are almost half way to our target  and hopefully we’ll make our target by the end of the summer. I will be in the cave daily from 10am till late to answer any questions you have about the cave.  The cave is open, you’ll be able to walk through and see the waterfall cascading into the second chamber, see the deadly Scottish piranhas feeding and I’ll be doing walking tours in the main chamber. I look forward to seeing you all, the caves going nowhere so hopefully we’ll be taking you on the inner cave tour again in the not to distant future.  I’ll mostly be at the small shed at the bottom of the stairs so come up and say hello, stay safe, remember to social distance and enjoy your summer holiday.
