Candlestick Cave, Loch Bracadale

Loch Bracadale is a sea loch on the west coast of Skye, south of the village of Bracadale. The loch opens out into the Atlantic and is guarded by basalt cliffs on either side.

A number of caves have been carved into the cliffs. One of these caves has a pillar standing on a base just outside the entrance. The entrance dome is 150ft high. The pillar is known as 'the candlestick' and has given its name to the cave.
