Corrieshalloch Gorge National Nature Reserve

About this place

Walk across the suspension bridge as the River Droma rushes through a mile-long box canyon below.

  • Cross the suspension bridge and marvel at the Falls of Measach plummeting into one of the most spectacular gorges in Britain.
  • Follow the trails through the woodland for views of the surrounding area.
  • Look out for different species of ferns growing in the microclimate of the gorge.

This mile-long canyon, through which the River Droma rushes, takes its name from the Gaelic for ‘ugly hollow’. But that’s as far from the truth as can be.

Corrieshalloch is one of the most spectacular gorges of its type in Britain and provides striking evidence of how glacial meltwater can create deep gorges. Just a short drive from Ullapool and only an hour from Inverness, this is the perfect place for a family adventure!

A short steep walk will bring you to a Victorian suspension bridge, where you can gaze down over a series of crashing waterfalls.

Corrieshalloch Gorge is designated a National Nature Reserve in recognition of the spectacular gorge and the surrounding woodland. It’s also home to a nationally rare species of cranefly, which benefits from the wet dead wood in the shaded areas of the property.

Did you know?

Gorge scramblers can get into areas that might not otherwise be accessed by regular surveys – they help us spot invasive species in the gorge that no one else would!
