Falls of Lora

A series of rapids visible at the narrows at the mouth of Loch Etive in the Lorn district of Argyllshire, the Falls of Lora (also Falls of Connel) are spanned by the Connel Bridge 5 miles (8 km) north of Oban. The falls are a tidal phenomenon, evident only at times of maximum tidal flow across the rock shelf which lies between the narrows. The falls are particularly well-developed as a high tide exits Loch Etive, occasionally creating large standing waves which provide excitement for canoeists.
