Walk and Waterfalls in Easter Ross & Black Isle
The impressive Rogie Falls on the Blackwater River are surrounded by mixed woodland with some lovely short walking trails. The woodland is home to pine martens and red squirrels and is a good place to enjoy the scents and sounds of the forest and, as you get closer, the river. The falls are best viewed from a suspension bridge over the river – quite wobbly, but well made! In late summer, there are superb views of salmon leaping the falls. An artificial channel has been created to give the fish some assistance. Visit after heavy rain or snow, when water gushes and tumbles from the slopes of Ben Wyvis and Rogie Falls are even more sensational. The car park lies beside the A835 road, 2 miles/3 km west of Contin. Toilets are available here during the summer months.
