If you're in this area I can't recommend visiting this area enough. It's really beautiful and it takes your breath away in more ways than one. It's easy to find - follow the road to the very end and then you'll find some parking. From...More

The hiking path from the parking area is really well maintained and actually quite easy especially if you are vaguely fit. Well worth the walk to the Falls and beyond. We didn’t attempt the suspension bridge near the Falls mainly bacaude there were lots of...More

On of the nicest walks that i have ever been on. No mountain climbing skills needed. Only takes 1hour to walk to the falls from the start of the trail. Absolutely stunning scenery along the way.

The walk to the Steall Waterfalls is not accessible to buggies or those with mobility difficulties, but if there is a hint of intrepid within you, then it is well worth the effort! It is clearly marked but uneven, and steep in places. It cuts...More

Probably one of the best things to do in Fort Williams! The walk is spectacular, the views, the scenery, everything!!! Please wear good walking boots as can be quite slippery and the track can be uneven at times.

We were recommended this walk at the Ben Nevis visitor centre and we were not disappointed. We recommend walking boots as the path can be slippy. It's not a gentle stroll as thete are some rocks to negotiate. Bit the views at the other end...More
