    The cave's first chamber has been formed by the sea, the inner passages by rainwater. Tours in summer take visitors to the inner chamber by boat. No charges if you don't make the boat trip. smoocave.org

    But the sight from afar is beautiful. Be sure to go in!

    In strong wind or rain, the boat does not drive, but you can still see the waterfall in the second cave.

    The river plunges almost 25 meters into the cave. You can also see that from the outside - there is a platform above the cave on the other side of the street. So do not miss it.

    The word "smjugg" roughly means divide and comes from the Vikings.

    An experience if I ever had one, we visited while on the NC500, after the typically scottish weather of rain for days on end. We went down to the opening and in to the smaller chamber, and the most almighty roar of a waterfall could be heard, seen and felt, I have been to many waterfalls over my adventures and never seen or felt anything like the one here, its not very tall, but the sheer power after the rain we had was immense.
