Rogie Falls 1About a mile north west of Contin on the Ullapool road in Ross-shire, Rogie Falls are a popular tourist attraction and starting point for a number of forest trails along the Black Water river.

Rogie Falls 2A suspension bridge supporting no more than five people at a time crosses the river, its swaying motion making it quite difficult to take photographs.

Rogie Falls 3Below the bridge, at the side of the river, a fish ladder was built to allow salmon and other fish to reach their spawning grounds upriver. Not all of them realise it’s there, of course, and you can often see salmon leaping up the main falls, usually in the autumn.
