Black Water Falls are just down the road from Rogie Falls but much less visited.
We took a slight detour from the NC500 to visit, pulled up more or less next door to it and spent maybe 15 minutes admiring the falls and taking photos.
The falls themselves are close to the car park but we felt equally as impressive as Rogie Falls. It was another opportunity to take a quiet few minutes out of our trip before carrying on

We visited Garve and did the Two Bridges walk, and it was well worth the small detour to do so. I highly recommend this walk. It’s a simple loop round fairly easy going ground, with plenty lovely spots for a picnic and great photo ops. Thankfully we had a lovely dry day for our walk but think it would also be great when raining and in full spate.

We were traveling Scotland for a month so a definite must see if you have plenty of time, however, if you are short on time, I would bypass. Still beautiful and a great experience. There is a car park and it is a very short walk to the falls.

Love Black Water. It always seems to be quieter than Rogie falls. Great to see the toilets open for people too. Found a great walk down the steps by the old road bridge and found another smaller waterfall further downstream. Colours were amazing. Will be stopping again when we are next passing.

Visited here with family, it is a lovely place to go walking. The children and the dogs had a great time. The car park was full but, we hardly saw anyone on our way round. The children especially liked the play park just over the stone bridge. Would recommend going here.

Just off the A835 it this picturesque spot featuring the Black Water Falls and Silverbridge, an old stone bridge over the water which you can walk down to and underneath. Well worth stopping here to stretch your legs and marvel at the stonemasons' workmanship.

Been visiting these falls for years and always love seeing them.

The black water and sheer force of the falls are amazing to watch.

The falls are viewable from a wheelchair accessible bridge.

Plenty of different aspects for photography and it's incredible when the river is in spate, however, when it is, DO NOT get too close, one slip and you'd be in the 'washing machine' on the south side of the bridge. There are also walks and childrens entertainments as reviewed by others.

Excellent walking trail, a bit boggy if wet but great non-the-less. I managed to get down to the falls rock area with no issues - see pics section. Its a short walk but has some ideal locations to relax and enjoy a snack. good opportunity for drone flying also - just be mindful of others.

The falls were stunning and amazing. The salmon were not running yet but the falls were great. A nice place to visit.
