Following Glen Nevis road all the way to the end will lead you to the start point of the walk. The last couple of miles is single track, but there are passing places, which is a relief as the area is quite popular. No need to pay for parking, so that is a plus, however there is only limited space... More

Great hike with great views. Even the wooded sections were pretty and have peek thru views. Drive to the END of Glen Nevis road (much longer than I expected). We arrive around 9:30 AM and there were quite a few cars parked already.

Amazing walk!!Great views a long the way and then almost at the end, the WAUW factor. The car park is easy to follow to the end, already a beautiful scenery!

Been to this beautiful waterfall more than once and the scenery takes my breath away every time I visit. Good hike along the gorge to get there means you need suitable footwear (not flip flops!) but it's worth the trek.

This is a fun walk, I didn't struggle with the walk as was taking a leisurely pace. The walk took us 2 hours due to sights and rope bridge (optional) as it was a gorgeous walk. If we were going slow we just moved to the side to allow faster passers.

This is a reasonable length hike and, although the ground can be wet and slippy along certain rocky sections, the view at the end is stunning. Make sure that you drive right to the end car park past the lower falls parking and take a drink and snack so that you can sit on the rocks and take it all... More

Nice place, very worth the travel even in worse weather conditions. Prepare some good gear...especially good shoes and prepare your nerves for steel-wire bridge over the river to the waterfall (it's not so hard actually :-)

My daughter is 7 years old and at some satges of the walk I was a bit scared. It is a beautiful walk but stones were wet and it was easy to slide. Nothing happened and it was a great excursión but please take care if you go with small children!

I enjoyed this walk but my friend had to stop half way as she found the steep drop to the side of the path a little scary.It opens up into a beautiful open area with the waterfalls at the end.worth the climb but you need good footwear.
