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

Let me put this in context, I have not been very well but my wife bless her egged me on to go here and I have to admit that it was a struggle to get here but worth it. I would recommend that if you go here take a backpack with a packed lunch and enjoy the area and soak... More

A lovely walk up to it through a gorge that has impressive falls and then the glen opens out of nowhere to show Steall Falls

Drive up Glen Nevis until you come to a car park. Do not be put of by the narrow road with passing places, you will eventually arrive. The start of the trail is well signposted. A rocky path with steep side cut into the side of the hill eventually leads to a beautiful green valley surrounded by mountains. The path... More

Four in our party walked up through the glen, at height but along by the river. A little tricky in parts requiring use of hands to steady oneself. although close to rock face in parts, it opens out at the top to lovely grassed area and you have site of the falls and of course the famous Steall Falls wire...

Amazing scenery. A fresh and sunny Spring day with the mountain tops still covered in snow. A lovely walk and climb over a few rocks on the way. Sturdy foot ware and careful steps need in places. Probably not for the very young. My advice would be to call in the Glen Nevis visitors centre and have a quick chat... More

My husband and I had the most magical time walking to the waterfall. The sun was shining as we approached the opening from the rocky paths. We could see the waterfall in the near distance. Suddenly the snow came over our shoulders and it was a winter wonderland. We braved it over the wire bridge - so exilerating, then enjoyed... More

Stunning, peaceful, inspiring. Easy walk but you do need decent footwear - wet and rocky in places on the way to the beautiful meadow. Don't visit the Fort William area without seeing this.

This was a very nice little walk with a few challenging parts, which made it all the better. Great views of the waterfall at the end of the walk and is highly recommended.
