What people say

"Rogie Falls, located near Contin in the Scottish Highlands, is a captivating natural attraction renowned for its scenic beauty and cascading waters. Set amidst the lush woodlands of the Black Water River, the falls are a stunning sight to behold, particularly during periods of heavy rainfall when the water surges dramatically over the rugged rock formations. Visitors can follow well-marked trails through the forest, immersing themselves in the tranquil surroundings and enjoying glimpses of wildlife such as red squirrels and woodland birds along the way. The highlight of a visit to Rogie Falls is undoubtedly the viewing platform, which offers panoramic views of the falls and the surrounding countryside. From this vantage point, visitors can marvel at the sheer power and beauty of nature as the water crashes down into the gorge below. Whether embarking on a leisurely stroll through the forest or simply pausing to admire the majesty of the falls, Rogie Falls promises a memorable and immersive experience in the heart of the Scottish Highlands."
"If you decide to hike up Ben Wyvis, you might want to round the day off with a gentle storll along to Rogie Falls, one of the many Forestry Commission attractions in the Ross-shire region in the northern highlands. It is enjoyed by many for its simple walking routes and beautiful waterfalls. There are a number of areas to view the Rogie Falls, the best one being on the suspension bridge sitting directly in front of the falls. The best time to go is first thing in the morning when it is a lot quieter and you won’t have anyone in front of your view. It will also be a lot more peaceful at this time. There is a small car park with space for around 20 cars which will get very busy during peak season. There are also toilets and bins on site."
"The waterfall is accessible by a half hour walk. There is the easier yellow trail from which you could see salmon leaping in July and August. Alternatively, there is a slightly more difficult blue route which is through the forest. You could potentially use one route on the way and the other on the way out."

Mentioned in these guides

The North Coast 500 is the magical route around the Highlands of Scotland. This journey begins in Inverness, known as the gateway to the Highlands. We will drive to the West coast of Scotland, with the opportunity to include the Isle of Skye if you have some extra time. Then, we drive clockwise along the coast, taking in waterfalls, lochs, beaches, and the rolling hills of Scotland. While driving the NC500, you will see the highlights of the route, with many opportunities for hikes, walks along the beach, and castles. As you drive you will be presented with scenic vistas of the rugged Scottish Highlands, whose views are known worldwide and are the real reason this route is so popular. You are encouraged to stop often at scenic points along the way to fully appreciate your surroundings. This guide will include a full itinerary for an 11 day trip. It can be cut down to 9 days if you remove the Isle of Skye. If you don't do all the activities, you could potentially cut down some more time, but I have tried to limit driving to under 3 hours a day. This guide also includes suggestions on where to stay and where to eat dinner for each night of the trip.
