Had a fantastic time visiting the waterfall with family- it was a challenging path which was very rocky, we all really enjoyed this! The actual waterfall was stunning even if it did rain on our walk we still all had an ace time!

After a lovely and interesting walk along a path that included rocks, mud, trickles from waterfalls, stepping stones and steep embankments, as well as a river rushing past, we arrived at Steall Waterfall and found it to be a lovely place. There is plenty of space for a picnic (bring your own supplies!), to sit on grass or rocks enjoying... More

Just not to be missed! The whole walk from the car-park is beautiful and very enjoyable. It is a great place to take your dog for a walk - but of course on a lead. You can just take in the first waterfall or keep going to the end. We didn't make it right to the end (dog with little... More

This is walk that is suitable for all levels of fitness. It is slightly uphill to begin with, however upon coming out of the trees the views are fantastic.

If you want to see this waterfall, it is certainly worth the trek! However, make sure you are wearing good walking shoes or boots, as some parts of the path can be rocky or uneven. Trainers or running shoes are definitely out of the question!Likewise, make sure you dress appropriately to weather conditions, as it can be dangerous, when wet!... More

A lovely walk along the river, some climbing and agility needed as there are rocks to clamber over. Proper walking boots essential. The reward is in the view towards the end of the trail which opens up from a wooded sheltered path to a wide open glen leading to the waterfall.

A long and tough way with rocks. Good to bring very good climbing shoes because it's slippery! The area looks better in real life than in photos! Absolutely worth it!

A beautiful gorge walk to get to the waterfall and well worth the walk. Take a stick if you're a bit unsteady as its rocky, wet and slippy in places.

Fairly easy 2.5 mile round-trip hike to Steall Falls. Beautiful views on the way in and out. Fun "tightrope" to walk across a river if you want to at the end of the trail. Drive in to the hike was stunning too with great views of Ben Nevis.
