Work has begun on the National Trust for Scotland’s £2.3 million project to improve visitor facilities at Corrieshalloch Gorge National Nature Reserve, one of the most picturesque and popular sites in the Highlands.

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

‘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.’

The suspension bridge crosses the Falls of Measach plummeting into one of the most spectacular gorges in Britain.

The Corrieshalloch Gorge Gateway will create a new visitor facilities by the historical suspension bridge across the Falls of Measach plummeting into the gorge below.

The ‘ambitious’ project will include an outdoor coffee stop, covered outdoor seating area, toilets, wifi, a blue loo for camper vans, improved parking facilities, and charging points for electric vehicles.
