What a beautiful hike up there! Not accessible for people with reduced mobility and it can get a little muddy up there. Highly recommend the visit!

We parked at lower falls and walked along the river and a bit of road walking to reach the car park for Steall falls, we then took the path through the gorge which was great. It was a rainy day and underfoot was very wet,...More

A 30 minute walk from the free car park leads to the Steall Waterfall. The entire visit filled a sunny Saturday morning and was enjoyed immensely by myself, my partner and two (rather old but energetic) Jack Russell dogs. We were greeted by stunning scenery,...More

Lovely (40 minutes) walk to the falls. Requires proper footwear, as dependent on the weather, you might have some water to cross. We had two Mini Dachshunds with us, and at times we carried them over the water crossing the path. Great views along the...More

This walk was one of the highlights of my Scotland trip. Travel as far as the Glen Nevis road goes, and get there early for a car park. There is a viewing point at first falls, but drive on, and maybe stop here on your...More

It's only a short walk from the carpark (it took my dog and me max 25min one way) to the waterfall. It's not suitable for wheelchairs but still not a difficult walk. You could even touch the waterfall. There is also a steal rope for...More

Take a good pair of walking shoes, your drink bottle and some bug spray and enjoy a fabulous morning or even full day at this beautiful location. It's a lovely, interesting walk. It's not steep but does require a basic level of fitness. Don't listen...More

A beautiful 40 minute walk to see these fantastic waterfalls. The walk is fairly easy, some of the rocks can be slippery in wet weather.

You can clamber right up to the falls and climb the rocks there, which is fun. Perhaps you could paddle/dip your toes in? Don't think there's a spot for 'swimming' per se.
