I was not at all sure how this panorama of Rogie Falls was going to turn out. As per usual it was a case of dodge the rain, which while may not be too bad for people - we dry out again - can have a rather more terminal effect on electrical equipment. Also the suspension bridge was wet, slippery and had gaps in it. Still, glad I took the risk, the picture is OK, though there is a lot of cloud cover.

Panorama of Rogie Falls in the Scottish Highlands in the north of Scotland. This panoramic picture was taken from the suspension bridge over the gorge at Rogie Falls with a clear view of the waterfall itself. Rogie Falls is also a nature park with a number of walks. The waters of Rogie Falls flow from Loch Garve, and continue downstream to the Cromarty Firth. The falls lie between the villages of Contin and Tarvie on the A385. There are two ways down to the waterfall from the car park. The first passes gently through a wooded area and then drops sharply down the hillside. The second drops quickly at first and then levels out along a gully filled with mosses and marshy ground. It is worth walking the routes as a circuit when visiting Rogie Falls to see how varied the terrain is and the differences the conditions make to what grows there.
At the time this panorama was taken in late Spring, there were blueberry bushes laden with early ripening fruits as far as the eye could see, carpeting the forest floor in amongst the silver birch trees. This area is a delight for nature lovers and botanical photographers. The lichen on rocks and fungus on tree stumps were fascinating to explore as the paths meandered through the parkland.
