good, healthy walk. Great spot for lunch under the waterfall. Not a difficult walk by any means, definitely go for it.

One of my favourite places to walk. It scenery changes with the seasons so you always get a different view. It can be busy in the summer months and quiet in the winter. Both are spectacular to walk and see.

Drive or walk to the very end of Glen Nevis where there is a small car park. Footpath then leads through a gorge before opening out to the waterfall in the distance (2-3 km to get there). Access to the waterfall is via a rope...More

About 45 minutes each way (if you’re relatively fit) from the free (but busy – go early or late) car park at the end of the single track road that runs past the Ben Nevis Visitor Centre (about 6 miles in total). NB no facilities...More

This was a fun hike but expect to get wet and cross a creek if you want to get close to the waterfall or you can walk on a tightrope to get across.

If you come to the car park and park from there, this is a relatively easy walk to Steall Falls. When you first come into the clearing and see the waterfalls, the view is absolutely breathtaking. I actually walked all the way from downtown Fort...More

Great walk, not an even pathway so maybe not suited for those a little unsteady on their feet. Parking was a challenge and the drive in tricky for someone not familiar with the road, but so so worth it. Meadow and falls were beautiful! So...More

I decided to climb this trail and was so surprised at the gem that was at the end of the climb. Very easy to walk and definitely worth the effort you won’t be disappointed.

It's gorgeous, easy short walk but the footpath is rocky. There is a small car park which gets full, particularly at weekends. The approach road is single track so you may want to consider what we did and get a taxi there. You will have...More

There is a bus, which stops before the path to the Steall Falls. You should plan 3 hours for the path and the visit. If you are short on time, take a cab to the beginning of the path and schedule a time for pickup.
