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

We visited here after reading all of the reviews and it was well worth it. The falls themselves weren't signposted very well (if at all) from the road and we were initially unsure if we were in the right location (and phone signal being so poor in Scotland found it impossible to double check). When heading on the road towards... More

To stretch our legs this is a easy walk, although the person in the information said you would go along steep cliffs and the rood being slippery when wet. Climbing at the end of the road over the steel cable bridge was fun, although some people may find that too scary. Good parking at the end of the road.

Walked up to the Steall waterfall to show my children this walk which I thought was magical when I first did it many years ago. The weather was very poor but they managed it and enjoyed soggy sandwiches as a reward. They enjoyed collecting rocks, trying to cross the Steall bridge, and imagined the gorge in the time of dinosaurs... More
