Loch Etive

Loch Etive

Photoblog: 30 Sep 2010

I assume that these are the Falls of Lora, except that all of the online sources state that the falls occur on the ebb tide, when the high waters flow out of Loch Etive into the Firth of Lorne, at the narrow loch mouth here in Connel. However, this is the flood tide, flowing into the 30km long sea loch, that is creating the rapids. So I don't know whether Wikipedia is wrong, or whether these don't technically count as the Falls of Lora.
