Buchan Caves Guided Tours

Experience the extraordinary underworld of Buchan Caves on a guided tour of Fairy Cave and Royal Cave. It's amazing to think that the elaborate limestone sculptures, calcite-rimmed pools and baroque stalactites and stalagmites have all formed through natural processes over thousands of years.

A guided tour is the only way to see the spectacular Buchan Caves caverns. Tours are available daily, except Christmas Day. Tickets must be purchased online 24 hours in advance, they are not available to purchase in person on the day.

Following an ancient watercourse, visitors can descend into the Fairy Cave and Royal Cave sections to see breathtaking caverns and remarkable limestone formations. The main difference between the two is in ease of access with Fairy Cave featuring more small passageways and more stairs to traverse.

Due to rock movement, a section of the Fairy Cave tunnel leading to the Black Wood chamber is currently closed. While works are being carried out, an altered Fairy Cave tour is available with more time to take in visual displays not normally seen on a standard tour.
