Lovely waterfalls

There are two lovely waterfalls - the lower and the higher one. The higher one is also accessible by car if you are in a hurry - obviously a walk is nicer.

A lovely walk, with a pretty steep beginning through trees and with some hairy crossings of waterfalls. If it's been raining (and when hasn't it?) the waterfalls that you cross are quite big and you'll need strongish legs and good boots. Then it levels out some, and you get beautiful views of the river with some falls which are pretty... More

We walked the slightly longer distance along the river path from the Lowers Falls with views through the valley and the South side of Ben Nevis. Once onto the main footpath through the gorge from the upper car park the trail is cut into the side on the mountain with sheer drops in parts, some slippery rocks and smaller waterfalls... More

Beautiful walk over uneven terrain which may not be suitable for everyone. The waterfall is quite stunning and can be reached by crossing a wire bridge...not for the faint hearted.

The walk starts at the free car park at the very end of the Glen Nevis road. Slather on the insect repellent and venture past the official sign which mentions falling to your death (I kid you not, see photo) Continue through woodland and into the gorge on initially very good path. In wet conditions trainers just won't be good... More

This is an absolute must if you are ever in Fort William and like to go for walks! Located right at the top of Glen Nevis (follow the road until it runs out..) and then a great walk down to the hidden falls (A pair of good boots are a must!) Words cannot describe just how stunning these falls are... More

Great walk, tricky scrambles over waterfalls at times and some very rocky areas. Lovely views and the weather was lovely when we went.

It's an exciting walk along the woodland path by the river although be wary those not keen on heights. The falls themselves and ok, but the steal 'rope' bridge is the most fun here.

Beautiful! Great walk out to the falls. The walk is a bit rough in some spots, but nothing too bad. You wander through the forest and then into an open valley, which is beautiful. You can walk across the wire bridge and wander up close to the waterfall. It's a great experience.

Short walk, a little climb, few tricky rocks on the way, but once you pass that, the magical view unveils itself in front of you. Beautiful,breathtaking and very memorable place. Can't wait to go back, as it can never get boring. Perfect for couples, families and friend groups and even solo if you love highlands and quiet.
