Pleasant walk from the hotel with lots of wild flowers and deep gorges. Did not go right through the woods due to time.

A short walk up the hill but the waterfall is spectacular and the woods we walked through are very pretty. Well worth the effort!

We pottered around black spout for the day. The falls are incredible. Much more impressive than they had looked in pictures. The walk is nice and easy and fun to explore.

We saw a family of wild deer and a red squirrel and the waterfall was beautiful. It's a nice walk round, about 30 minutes if you park there or you could walk into it from pitlochry.

Very scenic easy walk on a lovely sunny morning in the Highlands. The amount of different birds we seen was fantastic, the waterfall was spectacular albeit water flow somewhat reduced. Great photo opportunity from the viewing platform was taken and photos saved. Grandchildren love the walk and the opportunity to explore this old enchanted wooded area.

But wear walking shoes. It is a lovely walk and a map is available at the Information office which details the route.
