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

We had a gorgeous day, blue skies and some white fluffy cloud. The walk is not too difficult although there are a few places where you need to be sure of your footing. The kids were fine and enjoyed the walk too. The trees were just turning to their autumn colours. At the top of the walk the narrow gorge... More

Nice easy trek to a beautiful waterfall. If time permits, start with Cow Hill first followed by lunch at the beautiful Ben Nevis Inn first before climbing up to Steall Fall.

Wear solid walking/hiking shoes! The path has many rocks and requires some mild clambering. It's at the very end of the Ben Nevis road, so you can go all the way to the car park at the end, or you can park/take a cheap cab to Upper Falls and walk the very nice road up to the start of the... More

It would apply only to very careless or reckless hikers. Families with small children were returning from the falls as we headed onto the trail so we felt capable despite the warning sign. We read about this trail from a site of top 10 WORLD trails to hike. The drive to the trail was an adventure in it self with... More
