A beautiful walk throughout Forrest and hillside which then opens up to a "magical place" and the Steall Falls. Definitely worth the walk/ climb. I don't really do heights but this was ok, took about 45 minutes leisurely walk to reach them. Wish I'd taken a picnic to have there, a special place like nowhere else I've visited.

The walk starts not far from the Visitors Centre and is not that difficult but requires good footwear to climb over wet rocks. The reward is a wonderful area of pasture between the glens with a large Waterfall and, if you are brave enough, a rope bridge across a river. Allow a couple of hours for a slow walk, photographs,...

After parking at the bottom of the paved hill (didn't realise the epic trek ahead), we walked all the way to the car park and then on again, through the forest, past many mini waterfalls, out onto a meadow and then spied the beautiful falls. Majestic.

This is a tough walk because the ground is rocky and at times slippery.Its further than suggested in some guide books.Some of those writers are mountain goats.The walk is for the young or young at heart.

My husband and I walked the Ring of Steall and so were at the waterfall - beautiful glen and stunning setting. Well worth a walk up Glen Nevis to view!

Even though the weather wasn't brilliant... fantastic walk. The bridge was interesting to say the least.... got to be done!

The scenery from start to finish of this hike is breathtaking. We encountered hikers of all ages. The hike was easy/moderate. The landscape was at times like a Fairy Land with mossy trees and rocks. Plan to get your feet moist if you want to get right up near the falls due to the seeping carpet of moss and grasses.... More

Moderate difficulty hike through first a wooded area. Many spots are descending and ascending rocky pathways. You'll also encounter several smaller waterfalls and streams to hop over along the way so wear appropriate footwear. The road to the car park at the start of the trail is through a windy single track road (with passing points along the way), you... More

The scenery was obscured by bad weather, but the view of the waterfalls itself was nevertheless great. Drive all the way in till the end of the Glen Nevis road. The walk there is about 2km long, and will take anywhere between 30 minutes and 1 hour. The path is generally flat with a 10-15% incline. Some parts of the... More

Did this walk on a wet windy Sunday, will confess to being put off by the danger of death sign at the start of the walk, started well but it then got steeper and rockier!! Being scared of heights I decided to turn around and go back, however many other people have done it so it may just be me!!!... More
