I stayed at the "Royal" about ten years ago. It was a lovely hotel then, but a little dated. Today's Royal is a five star, top of the range hotel. It has been transformed by the present owner to, what I consider to be the best hotel in Ullapool. If you are fortunate to visit the Royal, have your evening... More

Be sure to wear good shoes because the path is slippery and rocky in places. It is not a very difficult walk, but if you go there with preschool children be sure to hold their hands in narow passages. The landscape is really gorgeous and very rewarding. With young children you can't get really close to the fall because you... More

Great, challenging walk for our 5 and 6 year olds. They loved it. Amazing BIG rocks. Make sure you have some midge spray on!!

It is certainly very pretty if not quite as mountainous as Nepal. The Nevis Gorge walk that leads you to the Falls reminded me of scenes from the movie Deliverance. Also akin to the Samaria gorge walk on Crete but nowhere near as demanding. Thoroughly recommended.

Worth the walk though wear correct foot wear as the walk entails a steep path, slippery and rocky in many places.

I had been here a few years before but wanted to share this with my family whilst we were in the area. As others have said getting there is not just parking in a car park and a quick stroll and you are there! It took us about an hour there and little quicker on the way back. The weather... More

Beautiful walk which the kids enjoyed - but watch out for the midges! We were lucky to be there when it was sunny and dry but is was slippery in some places, we didn't wear 'speciality' clothing or footwear but managed the walk by taking care.

We did this walk with a 4 year old, while challenging in places it was not too hard going for her. You do need to be aware of the huge drops by the path in places and please follow advice and wear decent shoes. When getting there when directions say to keep going to the car park at the end... More

We enjoyed our walk to the falls very much, but be warned the walk through Glen Nevis is not as easy as it is sometimes described. Some parts of the path are rough and uneven and slippery. We made several people wearing flipflops or other absolutely inadequate footwear. The walk takes about 45 minutes, then there is a river to... More

There's a reason this is #1 in Fort William on Trip Advisor. The views are really beautiful all along the way, and the destination is truly picturesque. Be advised that the hike is some arduous. It's a fairly steep elevation gain and the footing is occasionally a bit dodgy. But our group included hikers from 7 to 68 years old... More
