The walk takes no more than 20 minutes and opens to a large meadow with the river from the waterfall running through it. We wore trainers, had our two dogs and packed a picnic. The weather was fantastic which to be honest we probably didn't need as the views were breathtaking without it! There is a wire rope bridge you... More

Well worth the 25 minute walk from the upper car park. If you have never been and are in the area, it's a must. We parked at the bottom car park and walked up the river, truly magnificent views of the lower water falls and the scenery. We then crossed the bridge about 2/3rds of the way up and then... More

What a beautiful setting for a walk! The meadows at the top take your breath away. Really surprising. Give yourself three hours and take your time to enjoy the views, stroll all the way over to the ruins (not impressive but the views back through the meadows are totally worth it), and pack a picnic lunch for somewhere along the...

The round trip took about an hour and half and is a fairly easy walk, there are a few rocky bits. We took our time over the walk taking photos on the way. I would recommend shoes with good grip if not walking shoes. The views of some of the mountain range at the top is also pretty impressive and... More

1.5 hours round trek, definitely worth it, walking boots not necessary. Views stunning throughout the walk.

Great walk, stunning waterfall. Follow the road right to the end to the car park. The path in parts could prove tricky if with young children. 30-45 minutes to the water fall depending on your pace. If you are staying in Fort William this is a must do.

The waterfall is not the biggest you will find, but it is a great and easy walk. Definitely worth the 2 hour roundtrip. Don't be fooled by the road, just keep on driving until you reach Upper Glen Nevis Car Park (Fort William, Highland PH33 6SY - N 56°46'39.359999999999" W 5°0'1.0800000000007") at the very end of the road and then...

We went here on an amazing spring day and it was beautiful, well worth the hike. The climb over the bridge was a bit scary and then on the way back we decided to walk through the river.. DO NOT DO THIS! so slippery but a bit of fun! we got some amazing photos the day we went! nothing really... More

A lovely walk through the Glen to reveal a truly beautiful waterfall at the end. About 30 mins hike in and a further 10 to get up to the base of the fall. You need to go across a wee steel bridge to get right under if but it's well worth doing as you sit on the rocks watching the... More
