  • The excursion goes an hour going through caves and back. Tell as stalactites and stalagmites are growing, it is also a story about Queen Mary Stuart tell. At first could not quickly find the entrance to these caves almost between the houses are worth. Yes, we even with sidecar allowed. And despite the low tourist season there was a lot of people!
