Visited these after being disappointed by dog falls on the other side of the glen and I was so glad I did. You can get right up and personal to the falls with a great viewing platform reaching over the top, worth the 15min drive up the bumpy dirt track and the surrounding woods have an enchanted feel about them.

Choose between an easy walk or a harder walk to see stunning views of the falls, either way well worth the effort. Will be coming back next year to do the harder walk.

We really enjoyed Plodda Falls. As other's have said the road is a little rough but well worth the drive. There is plenty of parking and it is a short walk to the falls.

Worth the long drive ( horrid road nearer the falls). Take the longer trail down the valley and approach the Falls from below for the nicest view. But a shorter trail for the less fit. Wonderful in spate I expect but still lovely whenever you visit

This was part of a short walking holiday in Scotland focusing on waterfalls - there are some stunning ones in Scotland all along or near to the Great Glen Way. Falls of Foyers was one of four I visited, Steall Falls (near Fort William) Plodda Falls and Dog Falls (both near each other and north of Fort Augustus) were the... More

The road up was left a lot to be desired but luckily it wasn't busy and we didn't meet many cars coming in the opposite direction! When we reached the top there was snow fall and the carpark was a little icy but not too bad. The walk down to the viewing platform was pleasant although we didn't go much... More

We were on a tour of the area and our guide brought us to the trail that led us to the waterfalls. The hike was a bit steep at points, but the view of the waterfalls were worth the short trek. We did not have enough time to hike up to the top of the falls where there is a... More

Even in a year when so many rivers in Scotland have less water than usual, the Plodda falls are spectacular - especially from the viewing platform. The long and the short walks which are well marked provide enjoyable and only moderately strenuous exercise. It's worth spending a few minutes in the conservation village of Tomich to admire the Tweedmouth memorial... More

We visit Plodda every year when in the area. Its always stunning. Especially if you take the time to walk to the bottom and make your way up.
