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.

Easy walking up slopes, well marked - took about 11/2 hours, viewing platform at the waterfall helped the photo's. A bit muddy in places but not too strenuous and worked off the fab breakfast from the Mill Inn!

As it was a bit wet it was good to be sheltered by the trees we enjoyed the trail and the waterfalls built up our appetite for Dinner.

Lovely waterfall not too far to walk. I agree it is poorly signposted but it is well worth the effort to find it.

This was a bit awkward to find as we didn't want to trek for miles but we found a little car park at the bottom of the hill and it was only a mile to the top and back which suited my blistered feet. The views were lovely, it was peaceful and tranquil with the sound of running water the... More

The water was gushing out of Black Spout, more than I have ever seen it before, it's always a place to go, especially when you can walk on to Edradour Distillery
