This is worth walking to, to see the splendour around the corner! Hardy walking boots/trainers are needed but the walk is worth it. Majestic!

Cracking wee walk through Steall gorge with it's gnarled sides and rushing water into Steall meadows. The Falls can be really impressive after heavy rain but it's the mountainous area which is the draw here really. There are a few special birds about too - worth visiting when no one else is and keeping your eyes peeled. Bizarre to see... More

We parked at the closest carpark and followed the foot path from it to the falls. The walk can be sippery over broken ground and wet, so proper footwear is essential. The scenery is beautiful and the falls themselves very impressive. If you are feeling brave, use the wire-rope bridge across the river to get to the base of the... More

A great half a day walking tour and a lovely introduction to the beauties of Glen Nevis. It is possible to get very close to the waterfalls. Thanks to our guide Dave Buckett, we enjoyed a view of the waterfalls up close. You will also get a great view of Ben Nevis and get to see some different plants and... More

This is a lovely walk although it can be dangerous and the sign 'danger of death ' should not be taken lightly also if your afraid of heights i wouldnt recommend it, on the other hand there is some fantastic views to be seen and we managed to do it with our 4 year old daughter ( not recommended either)...

The sign at the beginning of this warns of ' danger of death'. Believe me it could happen!! We went on a day when it had rained and it was damp. The path was slippery and needed boots which we had on but some didn't!! A challenging walk especially if you do not like steep drops at the side of... More

This is the second year I have done this walk and I have been blessed with good weather on both occasions. I love this walk, it starts in woodland, climbs up then through a gorge with waterfalls and huge boulders then you step out into a beautiful plateau with streams and Steall waterfall. Well worth it, but I can imagine... More

The walk to the falls is not far but is quite rocky, so sensible shoes are needed. There are lots of little waterfalls and stepping stones which are fun. The views on the way up are beautiful but when you get to the top it is amazing (would make a great picnic spot). Worth the rocky bits without a doubt... More
