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

Although we couldn't get to the top of it (not easy when you see "Danger of Death" sign posted before you start the climb!) for the adventurers it's great! However do not fear, there are Lower Falls down the road, you could go for that instead, if you are afraid of heights..etc. Even from far, the falls are impressive, cannot... More

A must see! Firstly, the drive up to the car park is very windy and great fun to drive. Don't be fooled by the many car parks on the way, drive straight on to the very end of the road from Fort William. The mountain path crosses a number of springs and becks and then opens out into the most... More

Although it was a bitterly cold day, it was worth the walk to see this waterfall and the surrounding mountain grandeur.

It's a fairly rocky route this walk takes and some areas are a little tricky so you need to be pretty steady on your feet but the views along the way are amazing. However, nothing prepares you for what you see when you turn the corner as you enter the meadow. It is simply breathtaking! You spend about an hour... More

The waterfall was in full spate when I visited in March. I took lots of pictures and videos. Would recommend it for a quick visit, nice quiet setting too
