Reach for the Skye. Mother Nature showing off
Sea caves, also known as littoral caves, are found along coasts all over the world. They are formed primarily by the erosion of rock from wind and waves that attack weak spots in cliffs lining the shores of oceans and lakes. The sea cave on our homepage was photographed on the Isle of Skye. The scenic island in the Inner Hebrides is renowned for its natural beauty and home to some of Scotland's most dramatic landscapes.
