My wife and I read about Steall falls here on trip advisor and thought it would be worth a visit with our mum dad and grandad. The day we planned to go it rained and they got put off so Wifey and I went alone. Lucky we did though as the footpath turns quite rocky and difficult at times so... More

Once you are through the narrow path there is a high meadow with the falls at the end around the corner

This is an easy and beautiful hike. Well worth doing. At the end is a fun rope bridge that is an adventure. Just keep driving and driving. Don't stop until you get to the very end of the road. It will narrow down.

My boyfriend and I were visting Fort William for the day and our host reccommended we take the trek out to Steall Falls. To get there we took a taxi which cost about £12 each way, which was well worth it. The 45 minute walk to the falls is incredible in itself. Though it seems a bit dangerous at times,... More

This is a fantastic walk. It can be challenging in parts especially if wet but it really is worth it. Take it slowly and enjoy the views.

We drove right to the very top car park , then took the path to walk the 45 minute hike through the dramatic gorge to the top of the waterfall. The walk is reasonably hard going in places, very rocky and wet underfoot. Good strong boots are a must. Young walkers were bounding up the mountain side quite easily, but... More

From the upper car park in Glen Nevis there is a walk of about a mile or so through the woods and over a couple of small waterfalls you come out to what we call a hidden valley and the first thing to see is the height of the waterfall cascading down from the top of the mountain. What a... More

We very much enjoyed this walk with my eight year old daughter and 11-year-old son who enjoys the challenge of climbing the steep inclines and walking 40 minutes to see quite a beautiful waterfall. The small stream at the end of the walk was fun to throw skimmers into as well!

Stuck in drab fort William on a rainy day and searched TripAdvisor for nearby things to do finding this. Read dianem1971's review and went for it! So glad we did, it's been one of the highlights of our trip so far. We went in trainers and didn't find it bad, just had to be more careful crossing the small waterfalls... More

Please read the reviews before you attempt this one. We didn't realise how dangerous it was to get to the waterfall. We did it in the snow and rain and I wouldn't recommend as it is very slippy in parts. The track to the falls will take about 20 mins at a slowish pace. We had to cross over two... More
