Molino is a large cave in the Matienzo valley which is particularly easy to visit and is often used as an introductory trip for new cavers in the area. The entrance is a massive river sink and the river can be followed to a sump which has been dived to a large resurgence, also in the valley. The picture shows some of the massive stalactites in the roof of the cave.

In the north west corner of Scotland is a small area of limestone of considerable geological interest. The Durness limestone lies below the Moine Thrust and has a number of sporting caves developed in the river valleys in the area. The picture shows the streamway in Cnoc nan Uamh in high water conditions. The cave can be explored to a muddy sump before it becomes a place for cave divers, only.
