If you are driving along this side of Loch Ness, do make a point to stop at this pretty waterfall. It is pretty decent sized and impressive, and also really beautiful. Climb down is pretty steep, but not an issue as long as you are moderately fit at least. No vertigo inducing or slippery parts on the trail. Parking is... More

The Falls of Foyers is a significant waterfall and relatively easy to get to if you are taking the drive on the east side of Loch Ness. The trail down to the first overlook is steep enough to be a concern for any person with mobility issues. Once you get to the overlook, the view is definitely worth the exertion.... More

To get there you have already been on an adventure. You follow the signs , go the back way,up steep, single track tarmacadam roads, amid the highland woodlands,on until you come across the small settlement as if transported from somewhere else to the middle of no- where. Follow the signs ,a parking spot may be available next to the cafe.Directly... More

A beautiful waterfall that is well worth the steep climb back up the steps after you have seen it. Well laid out steps down to the waterfall, with an upper and lower viewing point. We continued the walk down to Foyers which was well worth it on a gorgeous day to end up on the shores of Loch Ness. Toilet... More

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

This was a very nice stop on our drive around Loch Ness, there are quite a few steps down (and then up again...) but it was more than worth it, there are a cafe and public convinience at the parkinglot

After a long walk down lots of steps you come to this beautiful waterfall, depending on the time of year you can get absolutely soaked, either way it's a really nice thing to see.

Scenic. Be sure to walk down after the waterfall, to the road, further down past the bridge and through the forest like area to the shores of Loch Ness!
