This spectacular beauty spot is 1.5 km long and 60 metres deep cutting through a Highland wilderness rich in flora and fauna. The River Droma runs through the gorge, dropping dramitcally through a series of waterfalls, including the 46 metre Falls of Measach.
The gorge was formed at the end of the last ice age and can be viewed from a viewing platform and a Victorian suspension footbridge. The walk below takes you past the gorge and through Braemor Wood to Lael Forest Garden with its 200 different tree species and longer plantation section with waterfalls.
Corrieshalloch Gorge is located about 12 miles south of Ullapool where you can climb to the viewpoint at Ullapool Hill and catch the ferry over to Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides.
