Very nice waterfall, short walk from the village. We did this early morning then on to Faskally via Garry bridge. Great sights along the way. Watch out for the ticks! Worth the walk.

I may have missed the correct path but it paralleled the stream to the path stopped. It was more of a rambling stream rather the a waterfall. Biggest fall was perhaps 2’ over boulders in the stream

We stopped here on our journey up to the Cairngorms. It was a great place to stop and stretch your legs (and even eat a picnic) - far more picturesque than any service station! The waterfall was beautiful too and not a far walk at...More

Lovely hike to take while you're waiting for a distillery tour. Not an overly difficult walk with a gorgeous view at the end.

Heading East out of Pitlochry and just past the Blair Athol Distillery there is a small left turn (blink and you miss it) that immediately goes under a railway bridge that leads, 200 yards later, to the car park for the falls. You can hear...More

We were staying at the Atholl Palace and access is gained to the wood from the hotel so went for a stroll after breakfast. This was an easy walk up to the water fall and was only about a 50 minute walk. Well worth the...More

Well worth the walk thru the woods. There’s well signposted walks to the Eridour distillery and the village of Moulin - both well worth a visit.

A wonderful place and relatively unspoilt part of the world. The weather was kind to us and we walked for miles. A great place to stay was the Pine Trees Hotel.

Enjoyed another walk up to the Black Spout today. Water flowing well at the moment. Great space for the dog to have a good run too.

Just a very quick note to advise any mobile people staying in or around Pitlochry should sort out directions to this waterfall.

The walk from the car park to the viewing platform is pretty short and in dry weather the paths are easily manageable even for a toddler but rather steep but I’m sure you’ll be keeping hold of them so well worth the effort
