The walk down to the falls is not for the faint of heart. There is one part of the built trail that winds down with no railing, if you do not like heights this can make you feel a bit shaky, however I would highly recommend breathing deeply, walking slowly down, stick to the left and you will definitely not...

Beautiful landmark to see if you're in the area. If you're driving straight to the falls, you have to drive down quite a few small one way roads, but it's a beautiful park.

Short walk down to the upper falls on a sloped area, but well worth it. Beautiful waterfall and surroundings.

It was a surprise to find this place nearby the hotel we stayed. It was a nice walk down the fall, it wasn't very big but was happy to pay a visit.

We visited the falls of foyers as we left the nearby campsite at Loch Ness Shores. There is a small car park next to the cafe and shop where you can park but this does get very busy. The walk to the first viewpoint takes around 10 mins down many steps but it is definitely worth it. The waterfall is... More

We walked from Upper Foyers right down to Loch Ness. The views are magnifacent!! There are lots of steps down and a fair amount of walking down hill which means it's a big hike back up. You get your workout fo rthe day but it is absolutely worth every step.

This attraction will get you your cardio workout for the day, but it is well worth the climb back up after you've seen the falls. It's not a long hike, but it's strenuous because it's nothing but up! There are a few different paths to take, some of which will take you into Lower Foyers, some of which will take... More

Quite a few steps and good footwear recommended. Insect repellent too, but view fabulous. The falls were bigger than I expected and two viewing areas on different levels.

This walk is certainly a nice way to spend part of a morning. The trails are well maintained and the falls themselves are very nice. The walk is relaxing and though you will encounter some stairs it was not too challenging. Certainly something to see if in Foyers.

Free to enter, there’s quite a climb down to view the Falls, with some parts over rough ground. There are two points from which to view the Falls on the left-hand path. A longer path to the right takes you to a more distant viewpoint
