Beauty spot closed after visitors ignore warning signs

Visitors ignoring warning signs at one of the most spectacular beauty spots in Scotland has led to the bridge that crosses over it being forced to close.

According to the BBC, the bridge, which carries over Corrieshalloch Gorge, near Braemore in Ross-shire, has faulty bolts.

Yet, despite warning signs alerting members of the public not to cross the bridge because of the obvious danger, they have continued to do so, forcing the National Trust of Scotland to close the site for urgent repair.

Entrance gates to the site have been padlocked shut and will not reopen until maintenance has been carried out.

The footbridge offers stunning views of the 150 foot Falls of Measach.

On the Scottish National Trust website, it is noted that visitors are able to walk down the side of the gorge and along it, choosing to either return on that same path or undertake a circular route returning to the car park. However, there are currently no views of the falls.
