Alternate Names: Carn nam Fiadh Cave

Notes: The coordinates put this on the north slopes of Carn nam Fiadh (Hill of the Deer), SSE of Tornapress, east of the upper reaches of Loch Kishorn. The area is described as the Coille Dubh (Black Wood) but Coille Dubh is historically a small area north of Tornapress on the north-west flanks of Cnoc Gorm. Birch compared to Ash of Rassel Wood. Limestone outcrops with "grikes" are more frequent and angle of slope greater than Rassel Wood.
