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.

We were staying at Fort Augustus and decided to travel on the less frequented road to Inverness and came across the little village of Foyers. We were travelling at a quiet time and were able to park easily to access the falls. There is a well made path with steps to both the upper and lower viewing points although there... More

It was threatening to rain so we only walked the 300 metres down to the first lookout, but the was still great. It would be good to walk further down on a better day! There is a cafe at the top, but we didn't visit it.

We only went to the viewing platform (5 minute walk) but had a great view of the falls. The area was quiet and serene

We walked here from Whitebridge through the fields and woods which was beautiful. The falls walks where great with stunning scenery. We did both upper and lower fall and walked into foyers with a short walk to a pier and small walk around Loch Ness. The actually fall was stunning amazing views too. A free day out too!

In the past (19th century) it was quite an adventure to go down the pathless, rock-strewn gorge to see the falls. Some, even though really curious, didn't even dare to go down that steep gorge. One of these was an aristocratic tourist. He was so scared that he gave 5 pounds to start a fund to create a path. Joseph... More

There is limited parking just past the cafe on the main road which can get busy. The walk is lovely and a steep descent on well made paths which makes for a steep climb back up but worth it for the views. The forest is amazing on a nice day and we saw a frog and a red squirrel!
