Trip Planner: Europe / UK / Scotland / Scottish Highlands / Ross and Cromarty / Evanton / Blackrock Caravan & Camping Park
Black Rock Gorge is a deep and narrow cleft in Old Red Sandstone conglomerate through which the Allt Graad (also known as the 'River Glass') flows in Easter Ross, Scotland. It was caused by rapids heavily burdened with sediment being carried upwards as part of the great Post-glacial rebound.Make Blackrock Caravan & Camping Park a centerpiece of your Evanton vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Evanton travel website.
It lies only a few kilometres from Evanton, at the edge of the Evanton Wood in the traditional territory of the Clan Munro. The Black Rock Gorge is approximately 1.5km in length as shown on 1:50 000 Ordnance Survey mapping and reaches 36 metres (120 feet) in depth. It attracts a substantial amount of tourism, and there is a camping site nearby.
The gorge is the subject of local Gaelic myth, in which a local noblewoman, the Lady of Balconie, is lured into its depths by a mysterious man, thought to be the Devil. Ever since, it is said, the cries which she utters can be heard from the top.
In April 2004, ten days of filming took place in the area for the movie Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and the gorge is the setting for one scene.
Also James Robertson’s award-winning novel The Testament of Gideon Mack is inspired by Black Rock Gorge.

Beautiful peaceful park. Not for you if you like somewhere with lots of entertainment but lovely for a peaceful, relaxing break. The local Co-op is a short walk away, as is the hotel which does lovely takeaway pizzas (and gives discount in the restaurant for guests from the caravan park). We'll definitely be back.
Warm welcome on arrival. luxury pod well equipped. Tray with tea coffee etc.a very nice touch quiet well kept site and good value for money. Ideal Location to use as a base when touring around.
