One that popped into my head for no clear reason earlier today.

How many waterfalls are there in the UK that fall directly into the sea?

The only one I could think of was the Kilt Rock waterfall on Skye.

there is one in Devon or Cornwall, called Speke Mill Mouth I think.

Close, but not quite. It goes over a sea cliff but flows across rocks & the beach to reach the sea.

In reply to Chris Harris: There is a one hundred metre waterfall on the west coast of Foula, which runs from the side of Da Sneug hill over the cliff. Often in high westerly winds it just ends up blowing back on the land so does that count?!

In reply to Chris Harris: Sure there's one on the way to the Old Man of Hoy from Rackwick. Don't think it was there in 2002, then was when I went back in 2007.

Give it a few years so the sea levels can rise, then i'll be right :D

I suppose you could argue for the Falls of Lora as well. Up to a point.

In reply to Chris Harris: I live in Morwenstow North Cornwall and there are a couple around, I can't think of the names of all of them but I know one is at the end of the Tidna Valley which is the valley you walk down to get to vicarage cliffs. There are a few which flow into to sea directly at high tide. However they are only small.

Why? This is a random question?
