It is quite a treacherous walk from Glen Nevis bottom through an amazing gorge like passage which requires suitable footwear and appreciation of the warnings posted. Yet remain within the boundaries of your own capabilities then you can also rewarded with a view of this quite stunning waterfall, challenge yourself further by crossing the river by the cable/rope bridge....

We made a longer walk of this by starting at the Ben Nevis Centre lower down the valley: we walked up Glen Nevis along the road, which was pleasant enough as there was little traffic, and the valley is beautiful. We read dire warnings about the trail being treacherous and slippery, but as long as you wear good walking shoes... More

Go here every time I go up to fort William well worth the visit not a far walk from the car park and I take my dogs as well. The path is a bit rocky and narrow in places but worth it to see the waterfall. And there's an old rope bridge that's great fun in the summer to swim... More

It took 45 minutes to walk from the car park to the source of the fall and it was, at times, quite arduous. I would only attempt such a feat with proper shoes on, as the path sometimes gets quite perilous. But you pass through some great scenery so the reward at the end is well worth the effort.

If you can't cope with climbing Ben Nevis, then this could be for you. It's a fairly demanding climb from the end of the road up Glen Nevis, following the Glen uphill. Parts of it are tricky, but people were managing it without walking boots and in one case we saw an elderly gentleman making it with the help of... More

Really good walk. We were lucky with the weather. To sure I would want to do it in the rain as path quite steep and narrow. Well with the effort

The 1 hour walk from the car park to the bottom of the falls is well worth the effort. Take a camera as the views are awesome. Wear appropriate footwear as the terrain can be rough underfoot.

Lovely falls in a stunning valley. Very well marked path but good shoes still needed, quite rocky in places and could be slippery after rain. Whether it's an easy walk or not depends on your fitness level, but most people could do it even if they sat down for a short rest! There is no steep climb. Some people almost... More

We were in Fort William in 2nd week of June 2014 and stayed in Travelodge. Before coming here, I read all the reviews of Steall falls in Trip Advisor but did not get answer to my question- How to go without own car? The first commendable response I got from the Tourist Information office( on the high street- 5mins from... More
