Cave. Dye testing in wet weather 2004, resurging from deep shaft above Hibernian Hole, 285m away from Albion Pot and 70m lower in altitude. Main rising - Uamh Ord Mor - also ran green, 600m horizontally from Albion Pot and 155 m lower indicating potential for system. Water levels too high for much digging.

During another visit at end of May, Roger, Martin and others extended Albion by a body length or two. Still going, but not easily.

The cave was capped at the request of the local landowner. In 2014, prior capping of pot defeated efforts to locate cave.

Alternate Names: Top Sink

Notes: Achindarroch or Achadh nan Darach is a hamlet in Highland region (Invernessshire) near the banks of Loch Linnhe on the A828. Its name means "field of oaks" (on the edge of the Glen Duror forest).
