“Spoiled by new walkway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This is a beautiful spot with great views of the spectacular waterfall and some delightful forest walks. It is a shame that it has been spoiled by a new walkway when there was nothing wrong with the old path - once again the health and safety mafia rules. Even with the new walkway it is not really suitable for wheelchair users so it makes no sense at all. Still worth visiting though. Leaping salmon can often be seen and there are sometimes otters playing on the far bank.

“Leaping Salmon and an Otter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Easy to get to and plenty of parking, The visitor Centre must have befallen a fate worse than death, all that was there was the footings. There is however a small play park for children to mess about in.
The falls are a short walk from the car park, probably no more than 100 yds. down a winding path to a viewing point. We certainly weren't disappointed with the number of Salmon we viewed leaping up the falls. We were even treated to the view of a local otter which appeared from under the lower fall munching on a salmon. Late July / August is the best time to see them as it's spawning time for the salmon, plus there was plenty of water in the river.
Although it's there one visit is enough, I wouldn't say it's suitable for wheel chairs, but if you do have one plus a helper, you may be able to get there but it will be a struggle. It would have been better in its hayday when the visitor centre was open but sadly its missed, nowhere for a coffee. Beware, midges are everywhere.

“Nice stop in your journey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Stop there to have a pause in your trip, look at the beautiful falls and if you want to have a walk, continue after the falls, pass the bridge and go for the forest walk and try to find the walk "view rock" (after the bridge straight in the forest, then on your right and then straight on until you see the indication "view rock" to the left). It is about one and a half hour walk to arrive on two big rocks with the view you wish to have... Hills, forests and Loch :-)

“Great location”

Well worth a visit, despite the walk down the hill, the falls were amazing, and the wildlife was brilliant.

“The peaceful sound of rushing water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Great place to stop if you're driving by. Falls are a quick and easy stroll from the carpark, approx 10 minutes. A viewpoint is located at the top part of the falls with a trail leading to the bridge which crosses the river. A salmon ladder, connected to the main falls, is located on the other side. Keep your eyes peeled for leaping salmon and remember to look on both sides of the bridge. Luckily we did manage a few shots of them trying to make it up the falls. Mesmorising to watch these fish attempt this daunting task, incredible! Hope you enjoy the pics. We were disappointed to see that people had left some rubbish around the trail, we picked some up but not all was reachable so please keep Scotland beautiful! Free toilets are also located in the carpark. Worth walking over there so see the mosaic.
