After leaving the Achmelvich Beach, a few minutes drive brought us back into the wilderness. The next stop was Corrieshalloch Gorge, which was carved on the Droma River during the last ice-age. The gorge is about 60m deep, and you have to look down into it while standing on a very fragile wooden bridge. Read on to experience an adrenaline rush.
Here's the board describing the Gorge. There's also a waterfall in close vicinity. It is called the Falls of Measach. You'll see it in a while.
Some pretty wildflowers on the way to the Gorge. Scotland is full of these.
This is the wooden bridge from which you had to peer into the gorge. The warning on its entrance alerts the travellers that no more than 6 people should be on the bridge at once. No one paid heed to the warning at first and at one point, there were 8 people on the bridge. but soon they realized the extreme risk they were taking and got off pretty soon.
This is the Gorge. Looking at this picture makes my head swim.
And those are the Falls of Measach in the distance. The roar of the water striking the rocks was audible quite clearly even from this far. I guess the narrow gorge amplified the sounds quite a bit.
A typical path through the pine forests. Nothing inspires romance like nature. Imagine walking down this path, hand-in-hand with your beloved, listening to the birds chirping all around.
Soon we returned to the bus and headed to our next stop.
