Every time I come to fort William, this walk is a favourite of mine. The car park is a bit hairy - set out early to get a space - but the walk is worth it. Easy to follow route, although tricky in parts underfoot, which opens out into Glen Nevis, with views of the Steall waterfall and wire bridge. Spectacular Autumn colours and amazing sunrise in the valley. Definitely worth a visit.

First time back in 15 years when I did the Ring of Steall (that’s another walk altogether). Drive as far as you can to the end of the road in Glen Nevis, but try to be as early as possible as the car park soon fills up. It took us about 45 minutes to get to the flat valley where the waterfall is, but a little less to get back. Sturdy footwear is recommended although we did see younger people wearing converse etc. There’s the rope bridge across the river which I have done before, but not on this occasion. Have a go if you’re fit and able.

Nice activity to do, takes about 2 hours there and back is approx 4miles walking. Go right up the top of glen Nevis road don’t park in the first big car park you come to but carry on up a single track road until you come to the true end of the road and a smaller free car park. Beware to take correct walking shoes as path is very uneven rocky wet and slippery. As you get closer to the waterfall to get right underneath it you need to cross a steel rope bridge which is not for the faint hearted! It felt a bit like a bush tucker challenge. Worth the walk but go prepared with the right clothing is a must particularly if a rainy day.

There's a reasonably strenuous walk from the car park before you get a view of the falls, with some nice viewpoints for taking pictures. The walk seems popular so if you don't arrive early you may struggle with parking. Once you reach sight of the falls, in a dramatic secluded valley you have the choice to cross a cable bridge. This is not suitable for young children or dogs, so this will be the closest you can get to the falls, but the views from here are still impressive. If you can cross the bridge (and there is often a queue to do so), a short walk will take you right to the bottom of the falls. The falls are impressive and getting so close is amazing.

Last time I went up to steall falls was around 32 years ago and I couldn't reach the ropes in the bridge at the top. I was a woman in a mission. I'm a lady with a fuller figure and I made it to the top meadow with a little bit of energy to spare! Walking boots are a must. So worth the effort for the views.
