Rogie Falls

Rogie Falls (Gaelic: Eas Rothagaidh) are a series of waterfalls on the Black Water, a river in Ross-shire in the Highlands of Scotland. The falls are about 2 km north-west of the village of Contin, next to the A835 road.[1] They are a popular tourist attraction, with several forest walks.

Rogie Falls and footbridge

The bridge will support a maximum of five persons at one time, with a narrow and sharp set of steps at its end. Access to the bridge requires limited ability with footpaths being well kept, however not wheelchair accessible by any stretch. Photography from the bridge is possible although either evening time when fewer people are around and using the bridge or in sunnier conditions when shorter exposure times are possible, due to the high degree of wobble.

As of December 2011, some building work is being performed on the far side of the waterfall which limits access to the top side of the waterfall; it is not possible to use the temporary walkways to obtain a better view, although it is possible to reach all areas with some creative walking.
