This is a short but spectacular walk in Wester Ross, near Ullapool, attracting several thousand walkers annually. The gorge is narrow and 200ft deep, having been cut by a much more powerful river flowing near the end of the last Ice Age.

The path zigzags down to a (swaying) suspension bridge across the River Droma, where the Falls of Measach plunge vertically for 150ft in the gorge; the view is vertiginous... From there you follow the gorge to a new (2007) observation platform built out over the gorge and giving a great view of the falls. Climbing up from the gorge, the route leads to a viewpoint looking over Loch Broom towards Ullapool.

A good family walk (young children could be tended at one or two points and I wouldn't take the dog) and a delightful break if motoring in the area.

Footwear is no problem.

A new path linking the viewpoint with the start of the walk is suitable for wheelchairs.
