Gorge, 200 feet (61 m) deep, on the A835 at Braemore 12 miles
(19.3 km) east of Ullapool, is one of the natural wonders of the
Highlands and not to be missed, especially after periods of
rain. The Droma River here has carved a spectacular mile-long box
canyon (one of the finest examples of a box canyon in
Britain) through hard metamorphic rock. There is a viewing
platform that provides an excellent vantage point,.for which you
will need a head for heights. It’s a dizzying and exhilarating
experience to look upwards towards the torrent of water plunging
46m (150ft) over the Falls of Measach.
John Fowler, joint designer of the
Forth Railway Bridge, bought the estate of Braemore in 1867.
