Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit to Corrieshalloch Gorge – your safety is our priority. This means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep everyone safe. Please read our Guide on what to expect before you set off.


Please keep a good distance from the edge of the gorge at all times.

Only 6 people are allowed on the bridge at any one time.

The site is unmanned but there’s an information board at the car park.

Corrieshalloch Gorge footbridge, the area immediately around the bridge and the metal viewing platform are ‘No Drone Zones’. This is to ensure there’s no disturbance to other visitors or a potential hazard when crossing the bridge or using the viewing platform.

Outwith these zones, amateur unmanned aerial vehicle (drone) operators must seek permission from the Property Manager before flying. Commercial operators should contact the Trust’s Filming Manager at filming@nts.org.uk.

For more information about planning your visit please see the drop-down Facilities or our frequently asked questions.

Facilities & access

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

Coach parking

Dogs are welcome but should be kept on a lead at all times.

The car park is off the A832, close to the junction to the A835.

The car park postcode is IV23 2PJ.

Self-guided trail

A short, steep walk from the car park along a good path takes you to the suspension bridge, which sways slightly. Walk across the 25m long bridge – stopping to enjoy the vertigo-inducing view of the river below if you dare! Then stand on the cantilevered viewing platform on the opposite side of the gorge and look down onto the crashing 45m high Falls of Measach. You may also catch glimpses of Loch Broom from here.

As an added bonus, the gorge is even more spectacular when it’s raining or after a recent wet spell.

As well as the path leading to the suspension bridge and viewing platform, the gorge can be explored by following two short trails.

  • Corrieshalloch Gorge is wheelchair accessible but there are steep gradients. 
  • There is an easier walk – both wheelchair- and pushchair-friendly – to a bench where there are views of Loch Broom and the surrounding countryside.
