Cave located 2 m above E bank of Traligill River midway between Lower Traligill Cave and the confluence of the river with the seasonally dry Allt a' Bhealaich. A low crawl floored with angular rubble leads to a steeply descending thrust plane. Descending this 3 m awkward squeeze on left gains further 8 m of descending rift. At base decorated slot guards 7 m of crawling to total choke.

Alternate Names: None recorded.

Notes: Cave explored by SUMCC prior to 1959 and extended by GSG in 1993.
