This was our first hike in Scotland and, for a couple of 60-year olds, we thought this was challenging, but later felt like wimps when we ran into a wedding party on the trail, fully-decked out in gowns, kilts/jackets, and carrying flowers. In our opinion,...More

Walked up to these falls on a lovely sunny April day. It’s an ‘interesting’ drive up a single track road to get to the upper car park, just keep going until the road stops! The path is rocky and steep in places with some lethal...More
