About this spot
Although Spar Cave is the most commonly used name for this hidden gem, its true Gaelic title is Slochd Altimen, which means Nursing Cave.
In more recent times, Spar Cave was famously visited in 1814 by Sir Walter Scott, who became so interested in it that he mentioned it in his poem ‘Lord of the Isles’. As with many of Scotland’s other wonders, this place has been left open and free for the public to visit.
