We stopped here to see the falls and made the walk down pretty easily. It's relatively smooth and certainly worth the short hike to see the falls. We didn't see any salmon, but got to see the ladder. The water is dark colored due to all the peat in the area. The trail back to the car park is tougher since it's uphill, but I managed despite being very out of shape. There are benches along the way to stop. It's free and dogs are allowed.

Whilst staying at nearby Strathpeffer the good lady and myself decided on a wander around the falls of Rogie trails, the location is well sign posted after the village of Contin on the road to Ullapool, has a choice of trails to suit most folk, of course the reward is the falls however you should take time to appreciate the Forestry Commissions time and effort.
There is plentiful off road parking along with public toilets

Situated just off the A835 Inverness to Ullapool road just past the village of Contin,this waterfall complex is not to be missed.
Good off road car parking and excellent toilet facilities are available on site.
The Forestry Commission is to be heartily congratulated for the investment and foresight it has exercised to make such gems accessible to native Scots and visitors alike.
An easy and short descent on a well maintained path, through high pine and spruce trees in an attractive valley, soon brings you to Rogie Falls. Tumbling and cascading multi streams fall over natural faults in the rock base of the Blackwater River. Good viewing points at various positions give great sights and lots of photo opportunities of the falls. From a few metres up the path excellent views of the wonderful suspension bridge are afforded and the brave may wish to view the beautiful falls from its breadth .
We were doubly fortunate to be at Rogie Falls in mid July, just after some good rainfall. In a very short period of time we had the delight of watching dozens of mature salmon leaping the falls majestically on their way up river to spawn. Many had to repeat this process before being successful . We wondered why they did not use the very well engineered fish ladder which ascended parallel to the falls?
A truly beautiful natural site, not to be missed if you are in this area!

Whenever we visit the Black Isle the relatives will manage a trip to the falls. It's a sneak peak at what's behind the highways we drive. And here is a lovely glimpse into the Scottish woods. There are several trails leading to a couple of view points and a well done suspension bridge. We were there in May so the river was running high and the falls at their best. I was intrigued to learn that it is a salmon river and that there is a ladder option to give the fellows a hand up the steep rocks. Lots to see on gentle trails. Well worth a visit.

Worth a visit,though in summer may not be as impressive due to less water passing through it.
Information pamphlets were not available, which was rather disappointing as we did not know what walks were available in the area
