We visited this area on the way to Crieff, unfortunately the heavens opened whilst we were there so did not stop that long to see if we could see the salmon travelling up stream, but it is worth the stop during any weather - a truly beautiful and peaceful area.

Beautiful views especially on the rocks. There was no salmon though but it is the wrong month to see them. Best going around October November time to see salmon.

First saw this lovely waterfall area when in my 20s and have visited a few times since. Very pretty and if you go at the right time of year you can see the salmon leap

Excellent place for watching the salmon, bit they are not circus salmon... They do decide themselves when the conditions are right so don't expect to turn up and see loads of salmon within 5 minites. Do your homework. Went on the 26th and 27th of October following heavy rainfall and saw them naturally trying to make it to their spawning... More

This is one of those attractions that has been made out to be a bit bigger than it actually is. Thats not to say it isn't impressive, it probably is if you haven't seen a lot of water flowing before; but there are loads of places in Scotland where there are large and fast flows of water and many of...

When there is enough water flowing, this is a wonderful spot to visit. The path down can be slippy but, the view is worth it. It can be dangerous and so watch with children.

An incredible stretch of river completed by fall colors. No salmon heading upstream on this day, but still didn't disappont. Five minutes past Glenalmond College.

They don't want too many folk down here! It's hard to find, badly signposted and even the actual sign by the attraction is overgrown with greenery. We saw one or two fish doing their thing, as they have been doing since time immemorial, and then we left.

We called at this spot after reading about it on the internet. There were no salmon - we waited for quite a while but there was nothing. We will have to go back next year. It was probably too early - I think it needed to rain to get them moving! Unbelievable place though.
