SCOSKA CAVE

Map of Scoska and Bown Scar Caves

An interesting but relatively easy trip is Scoska Cave, about halfway between Litton and Arncliffe on the south side of Littondale.
It's large, imposing entrance is in Scoska Wood about 230 feet (70m) above the River Skirfare at the head of Gildersbank Sike.
Nearby and hydrologically connected to Scoska  is Bown Scar Cave, a more challenging trip.
Here are some pictures of Scoska Cave:
