Rumbling Bridge Falls is a waterfall beside Rumbling Bridge, near Kinross.
An unusual double bridge spans a narrow gorge, mixed woodland clings to the rocky upper reaches and far below the River Devon rushes through the dark ravine making a constant rumbling sound.
The original Rumbling Bridge, built without parapets in 1713, stands 80 ft above the water. The upper arch was added in 1816 to widen the road and ease the steep and dangerous gradients down to the old bridge. The newer bridge is 120 ft above the water.
There is a pathway through the gorge, built and maintained by the armed forces, which gives good views of the spectacular manmade and natural features. Look out for the aptly named Devil's Mill and the Falls of the Cauldron Linn, dark swirling pools in the gorge.
Walkers can also enjoy a riverside path linking Rumbling Bridge with the small village of Crook of Devon.
