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!

A steep walk down but path well kept and easy to follow. We could hear the falls long before we saw them - stunning. I also liked the stones with Burns poetry etched on them. Follow the path to Lower Foyers for a squirrel info walk. We were lucky to see several squirrels too. A lovely walk, ideal for all... More

Well looked after path network to the views of the falls. The falls and the gorge were amazing probably helped by the heavy rain the night before!

The falls of Foyers maybe not the biggest but it a lovely area tucked away. Stopped and dragged the kids and wife down and got some cracking photos. The path is well maintained and good information. There is good parking and nice shop/cafe across the road.

A spur of the moment visit, it's a fair walk down to the falls and be prepared for the walk back up. The path down is nice, although a little uneven and the odd pile of dog mess (shame on you those responsible). The falls themselves are nice and can be viewed from two viewing areas.

A great place to visit and walk - the path way is a little confusing as the signs seems to not be there so hoped we were on the right route.
