The Falls of Rogie, Ross-shire

This postcard shows the Falls of Rogie on the River Blackwater near Contin, five miles west of the village of Strathpeffer. A man is sitting on a rock, fishing.

A trip to Rogie Falls was a popular excursion for visitors who came to Strathpeffer to 'take the waters' when it was a fashionable Victorian spa resort. Although the falls are not especially high or spectacular, they remain a favourite picnic spot today. Birch trees line the banks and salmon can sometimes be seen leaping up the falls.
