The earliest signs of human habitation on the Coigach peninsula were discovered in 1889 when the ‘bone caves’ at Inchnadamph were excavated. Inside were found the remnants of species of animals that once lived in the area – polar bear, lynx, arctic fox & lemmings – along with traces of the humans who hunted them. There is a good circular walk which starts on the A837 between Elphin & Inchnadamph. It takes between 1.5 – 2 hrs to complete and a suggested itinery can be found here.
Last time we were up there was also a very good display at the Tourist Information Centre in Lochinver covering a lot of historical information about the area. Well worth a visit.
