Corrieshalloch Gorge (Scottish Gaelic: Coire Shalach, meaning unattractive corrie) is situated on the Droma River 20 km S of Ullapool (between the A832 and A835 roads near Braemore) in the Scottish Highlands. It is 1.5 km long, 60m deep and formed at the end of the last ice age (10-13,000Y BP) by rapid erosion caused by meltwater. The 46m Falls of Measach (Gaelic: Easan na Miasaich, meaning waterfalls of the place of platters, with reference to the pot-holes worn by the action of the water) can be viewed from a viewing platform and a Victorian suspension footbridge. The gorge and surrounding area are owned by the National Trust for Scotland.
