Caving in Scotland

There are over 3000 known natural caves in Scotland. Usually caves form in areas where the soluble rock such as limestone is gradually dissolved by water over time. This is referred to as karst.

For more information about Scottish caves, including information about the database of caves kept by GSG, visit the Caving in Scotland page.

Caving with the GSG

You do not need to be a member of the GSG to cave with us, but you do need insurance. We can provide this for your first four trips as a non-member if you are unsure you wish to take up caving.

Membership ensures that you are able to book spaces on trips and training sessions, and comes with BCA insurance.

See the Join Us page for more information about the benefits of membership.
