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.

We were staying in Kinlochleven at the other side of the Mamore ridge. We accessed Glen Nevis from the Fort William side though. Our youngest is a waterfall expert and pronounced this one a pretty one. The walk in is fairly easy though good boots are required. Many years ago I camped in the flat field near the wire bridge...

After the Nevis Experience we thought that we would have a quick walk to the waterfall to take advantage of the glorious weather. We drove as far as we could to the highest car park and then walked. Proper shoes are necessary even though it was quite dry. It's not far to the waterfall, but the walk took longer than... More

We visited in November but the weather was amazing! It was a beautiful sunny day and the mountains around were peaked with snow. We parked in the lower car park because we were told te walk up to the higher falls car park was good. I would drive up to the higher falls and not to waste your time walking... More
