Falls of Measach, Scottish Highlands

This evening, I am posting information on the Corrieshalloch Gorge which forms part of a National Nature Reserve in Scotland’s N.W. Highlands.

Facts and information as follows:

  • Located about twelve miles south of Ullapool.
  • Accessed via short, steep trail.
  • Crossed by a suspension bridge. There is also a separate viewing platform.
  • Translates as ‘Ugly Hollow’ in Gaelic but this is a misnomer as the view is far from ugly, in fact quite spectacular.
  • Technically known as a Slot Gorge and was formed by glacial meltwater about 2.6m years ago.
  • Through the gorge flows the River Droma. This drops 100 metres over 1.25km including the 150 ft drop at the Falls of Measach.
