My two daughters and I hiked from the closest car park and enjoyed the walk. We were there after many days of heavy rain and the "little waterfalls" you walk through to get to the glen were rushing. The path is narrow, passing others takes a little do-si doing but doable and everyone was very courteous. There are several spots... More

After a long scenic drive through Glen Nevis, you arrive at a small parking spot. A 1k walk from there and you reach the dales. Be sure not to try this in anything other that sturdy walking boots as part of the trek is narrow and rocky. Spray please plenty of insect repellent and the dreaded midges won't spoil it... More

Living in Fort William does not allow you fully to appreciate the effect our landscape has on tourists who visit our town. I took two cousins up " The Glen" on a beautiful sunny day,very rare in Lochaber, and they were absolutely gobsmacked when the falls first came into view.However there was some trepidation on their part when they saw...

Beautiful scenery around this area. Nice easy walks - nothing is too steep. Have coins at the ready as car park costs £3 and is 'pay as you park' machine.

Attemted this in October 2014 but turned around at the first waterfall because I was too chicken! So glad we returned. I am a bit soft when it comes to walking on steep sided paths but I overcame this and the view of the waterfall as you emerge from the wooded path is worth every midge bite I received :0)

Drive as far as you can can on the road by the river Nevis,because it is still a good trek to the falls.This erea is of outstanding beauty probably as good as anything you will see.

It was a tough and relatively long walk to get to the Steall waterfall, but really well worth it. It starts with a sign stating danger of death, but really and truly, although there are a few challenging paths, we truly enjoyed this. We had fantastic weather on the day with a clear blue sky so the view and feeling... More

We went again in summer, and just after the weekend's rain the waterfall was a huge wall of white water. It was very impressive and the path easily walk-able with a baby on my back. Saw a few fish rising in the river too which has free fishing for small trout above the lower falls.
