My husband and I had the most magical time walking to the waterfall. The sun was shining as we approached the opening from the rocky paths. We could see the waterfall in the near distance. Suddenly the snow came over our shoulders and it was a winter wonderland. We braved it over the wire bridge - so exilerating, then enjoyed... More

Stunning, peaceful, inspiring. Easy walk but you do need decent footwear - wet and rocky in places on the way to the beautiful meadow. Don't visit the Fort William area without seeing this.

This was a very nice little walk with a few challenging parts, which made it all the better. Great views of the waterfall at the end of the walk and is highly recommended.

A beautiful place to visit. An easy short walk with spectacular views on the way. Not to steep. We visited the falls on January 6th 2015. Weather was a mix of sunshine and light showers with a light wind. Easy path to follow. Great views when you turn the corner and are suddenly faced with an open valley with a... More

We parked at the car park by the start of the path to the falls. Hike is not arduous but you need sturdy footware - the path is rocky and narrow in places. Near the end, the walk opens out into a field and then you see the falls at the end. I wasn't tall enough to get up on... More

One of the best hikes we took on our two week trip to Scotland. The hike is a few miles long, but is not difficult at all. Some places are a little narrow, but it was very beautiful. Once you get to the falls, it is wonderful. You can actually - very easily - hike up into the waterfall -... More

This is an attraction which can be enjoyed wet or dry. It rained the whole time we were there but the scenery remained beautiful. I have uploaded a good selection of photos of this site. You can view from the top or bottom of the waterfall. We did both, and my husband walked out onto the top of the falls.... More

Did this walk a few years ago. We parked in carpark at start of walk and walked on a path to the falls. The path is for the most easy walking but in places you walk over small waterfalls and rocks. Nothing too scary Once in the valley there is a metal rope bridge to cross to get to the... More

Fairly short easy walk though there are parts that are slippery. Wear good shoes and don't forget the insect repellent! The harry potter dragon scene was filmed near here too. We caught a bus from the bus station by Morrisons (MacFarlane Way). We just asked almost every bus that came past whether they went up near there until we found... More

On a hike to do the Ring of Steall I walked through the waterfall. Managed to get over without ending to remove boots and socks but it was a close thing.
