This place is a must. We travelled from Kingussie to come here and a few other places whilst in the area.

The Falls are amazing, helped by the fact that there had been plenty of snow up high and rain.

I would certainly recommend a visit, it's well worth it and I would certainly come back.

Incredible set of small water falls. The noise is stunning and to watch all the water gushing together is incredible. No health and safety either so you can walk across the rocks and get as close as you dare! Very refreshing. Well worth a short visit. Lovely pub directly opposite too (Falls of Dochart Inn)

Stunning scenery accessible via the old railway from a free carpark. You can fairly safely walk very near the falls and even sit on a flat rock and take it all in.
From the same carpark you can also turn left and do a round walk (totally flat so very family-friendly) to the start of Loch Tay.

The Falls of Dochart are right in the centre of Killin village, they're impossible to miss. Depending on where you park or which direction you approach the village from you may need to walk over the bridge where cars pass. There's no pavement so if you have small children just be aware.

You can walk right down to the rocks that go across the river and get some great pictures, the only downside we found was it was very busy, so getting a picture without tourists in was impossible. Not really a big downside in all honesty!

Lovely pub nearby for drinks/ice cream, well worth a visit.

This was a lovely place to stop, stretch your legs and take hundreds of photos of the Falls from all different angles. The noise is great, thousands of gallons of peaty water thundering passed. There were a couple of places to eat that looked good but not long after we arrived a coach load of people arrived so we moved on. But even on a grey day it’s well worth a stop

A local attraction in Killin, the Falls of Dochart are worth a visit. The water doesn't drop a significant height through the Falls, hence the title of this review, but they are worth a visit to see the rocks and how they have been eroded by the water through time, and I am sure that when they are in "sleight" they probably look spectacular. They are easy to get close to, even for small children, although keep them closer, and enjoy the view.

Every time we come to Scotland on this coast and see the signs for Killin, no matter what the weather, we always have to go to the magical Falls of Dochart. It is better to go after the rains as the falls swell and flow so fast, but what an experience. Usually it is best to park in the public car park in Killin and walk back the 500 years to the falls. You can get some great photos from the bridge, or even better that you can walk onto the rocks to get even more spectacular photos but be careful as they can get slippy after the rain. There are a few nice places to eat and a lovely cute little gift shop right by the bridge. Watch out when walking across the bridge as it is used by cars as well and can be a tight squeeze when they are coming from both directions. I think one of the best things about the falls is the noise of the rushing waters, hence it is best to go in the rainy season when all the water is coming down from the mountains, to make it even more spectacular.

We stayed in Killin for a week, attracted by the falls and the village. The falls are beautiful and accessible with large rocks and roaring water, especially after rain. We loved being in Killin and made daily trips out exploring the area. Dining options are limited in town so do plan ahead for dinner reservations if you are staying here. We enjoyed being in a small village. It does attract tourists (like us) but definitely a nice environment right in the highlands with lochs and mountains all around.

I was passing through the area, so parked in Killin and took the walk from the car park, over the old railway bridge, and took in the falls from that spot. I had a drink at the pub, soaked up the views and wandered back through the town to the car park. The best way to do it.

Despite current situation, we had a fantastic meal to round of an equally fantastic week. Staff were friendly despite wearing disguises! Food was hot and worth the wait. Dessert were filling, my only critical point would be the cask ale, needs looking at, too cold causing a chill haze. Apart from that, which caused me to have a nice bottle of Chilean white at a very reasonable price, our visit was yet again a good one.
