The Falls of Measach are found deep within a remarkable, steep-side gorge in Ross-shire, known as the Corrieshalloch Gorge. The Droma River running through the gorge tumbles 151 feet over the crags here.

The name of the waterfall is Gaelic, in which language it is called Easan na Miasaich, meaning 'Waterfalls of the Place of Platters', which is a reference to the pot-holes worn by the action of the water[1])

The falls 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.
