The Falls of Lora Information Website
Times for 2016 available here
Times for 2017 - Ah! Slight problem.
The software that I use to maintain this website no longer works. Thank you Microsoft!
At the moment I can't update the time and dates page.
However, if you contact me by email I will send you a link to a pdf version of the 2017 data
The falls of Lora are situated six miles North East of Oban on the West Coast of Scotland.
The falls are generated when the tide level in the Firth of Lorn drops below the level of the water in Loch Etive.
On the Ebb tide, the seawater in Loch Etive pours out through the narrows which are themselves spanned by the spectacular and historic Connel Bridge. The currents and waves produced by the flood tide are also well worth seeing and paddling
The falls provide excitement for kayakers and divers as well as a stunning sight for tourists and photographers
Because the falls are tidal, they are not always flowing. This website has been established to enable anyone who wants to see or use them to be there at the right time on the right day.
The information contained in this website has been well researched, confirmed by observation and is provided in good faith. However, the timing and height of the tides can be significantly affected by atmospheric pressure and strong winds. To summarize, if you don't have fun, it's not our fault!
If you have any information, corrections or suggestions to add to the site or have any questions, please contact the web author on email@example.com
