Beautiful waterfall which is worth a trip to. Set in beautiful surroundings. Small shop & cafe with a small parking area. 2 toilets are also available near the park. Not recommended for those with mobility issues & I wouldn't like to bring little children due to the uneven footpath and step drops.

Good walk down to the falls, although when we went the water was frozen so some of the rocks were very slippery. The falls themselves are really spectacular to see; and there is Rabbie Burns lines carved out onto rocks on the walk down to the falls.

A good bit of excercise, and the falls are stunning. We took our two children age 6 & 10. We had a great time. I would not advise this for anyone who struggles with steps.

We were heading from Inverness to Fort Augustus, at the inside end of Loch Ness, where we stayed the night. Foyers Falls is on the opposite side of the Loch to Urquhart Castle [ruins] and visitor centre. We headed into Loch Ness before crossing the bridge and continued about 3 quarters in before turning to the falls. It is sign-posted.... More

Great walks all around and the falls are dramatic and beautiful. Some of the paths are not easy walking but fun.

To get to the falls is very exciting, certainly if you aren't used to drive on a one road track. The drive from Fort Augustus is really worth it. Arriving at the car park, there is a small grocery store. In forest itself you can choose different walks. We decided to watch the falls and afterwards follow the path down... More

Had a run out there after being a tad dissappointed in Inverness at Museum being closed Monday to Thursday. The walk to the fals are a good climb down but well worth the walk as the views and of the falls are incredible and views over Loch Ness lovely as well. Great we tea room in Foyers where they did...

Short walk to see the beautiful falls, lots of resting places to have a seat and just take in the scenery.

The falls are down 200 steps, which are basically naturally carved out of bedrock and slippery, there are parts with no handrail and a sheer drop the other side, one slip and the only way you come out is by air ambulance! Also the falls can be turned off by the local hydroelctric company, wouldn't go again was terrified!
