In Gaelic, the name of this cave is Slochd Altimen or ‘nursing cave’. This refers to a 9th century princess who fell in love with a shipwrecked sailor from a different clan. Fearful of the repercussions of their liaison, the princess is said to have hidden their baby in this cave. The cave was also reported to have been visited by Sir Walter Scott in 1814 who described the cave’s cathedral like interior, covered with calcite luminous ‘spars’ in his poem ‘The Lord of the Isles’.
