Welcome to Rogie Falls


Rogie Falls (pronounced “ROH-ghee”) is a beautiful spot and is situated off the main road to Ullapool just over a mile north west of the village of Contin.

It offers several good forest walks. There are plenty of way-marked walks and seating at a viewpoint overlooking the falls.

The claim to fame of this roughly 30ft waterfall on the river Black Water is that it was a well-known route of salmon making the arduous swim from the North Sea towards spawning grounds in this part of the river.

A salmon ladder was built to make it easier for salmon to continue their journey further upstream to lay eggs or to spawn.

Such ladders were basically an alternate man-made watercourse with less severe drops running alongside the main cascade
