A short drive from Ft Augustus the views from the stairway down to the falls are delightful. A nice noisy waterfall and mist enshrouded rocky crags. Coffee and scones served by a rosy cheeked lass in a cosy room added to the experience.

Long slippery walk but definitely worth it. Thank you to the local firbrigadev who supported an excellent and free firework display on 5th November

We have taken this walk a couple of times with our dogs. Really nice, well laid out walk, but could be a little steep for some. Gorgeous views at the viewpoints

Spectacular falls but be prepared for a long walk. There are two main viewing points within a short walk. From Foyers village you have the advantage of walking downhill to the viewing points, after that you can continue all the way down to the Loch. Be prepared for some strenuous exercise getting back up the hill though! An amazing way... More

Absolutely loved it. The waterfall is really beautiful. If you will lucky enough you can also spot cheeky squirrels hiding around, fabulous walk around the area!

We made an ad-hoc stop to see this waterfall at my Daughters request. Once you get down all the steps and slopes it's a lovely sight but don't forget you have to get back up!! Plenty of places to have a breather on the way back so don't worry.

From the main road you can either do a short walk to the falls, or a longer one through the woods along the river to the loch. The short walk to the falls is quite steep with lots of steps but perfectly safe and doable, once you get to the falls it's stunning.
