Ballagan Spout main drop

Another scramble through untracked, steep, birch, oak and bracken woodland to the bottom of Ballagan Spout. Worth the scramble. About two hour's worth of Glasgow rain to get this amount of water going down.

The only dry place outside of a house for several miles, tucked under the overhang where the burn drops down. Fantastic place. I hope it will be easier to get to in the Spring before the bracken grows.

Bit of a rough landing for anything going over the fall. There is a flat, non slippery boulder (probably recently fallen!!!!) that you can sit on, in full waterproofs, in the spray drift at the bottom of the drop.

Some idea of the fall.
