A favourite walking trail within the North West Highlands Geopark. It’s often described as the Jewel in the crown of the Geopark. The visitor’s center has extensive information boards on out how the mountains were formed and Geologists travel from all over the world to visit. The trail has some wonderful stone sculptures and many great spots to have a picnic where you can relax and breath in the fresh air while admiring the wonderful views.
A short steep walk takes you down to Corrieshalloch Gorge which is a mile long canyon and waterfall. At the bottom of the trail you will reach a Victorian suspension bridge which takes you across the gorge to the viewing platform where the water surges many meters below. The woodland walk has good paths and great views out towards Loch Broom. The suspension bridge was built by John Fowler, the pioneering engineer responsible for the world’s first underground railway and joint chief engineer on the iconic Forth Railway Bridge. Due to its extraordinary natural features, Corrieshalloch Gorge is a National Nature Reserve.
