Having not been here for some years it was nice to see the new visitor center with the cafe. The falls were amazing after all the rain and well worth the £2.50 entrance fee.

When you arrive here you can hear the sound of the water before you even see it! We were I suppose somewhat extra lucky as on the day of our visit there had been quite a lot of rain during the previous few days which...More

Yes you have to pay....but £2.50 isn't a great deal compared with what we pay for any form of entertainment. If you take your time, enjoy the scenery, make use of your camera, check out the wildlife in and around the water then you will...More

After seeing Hardraw force come out of the Green Dragon pub and turn right. Walk to the stream. Locals walk along there. However, there is lots of walks in the area. Just follow your nose. Beautiful area.

It would be accessible with care! You would not be able to get as far up to the waterfall as others, as the nearer you get, the more rough and uneven the terrain.
