“Well worth the hike!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

My son and I hiked the trail to Steall Waterfall and it was one of the highlights of our entire trip to Scotland. Absolutely beautiful falls, but the hike to get there is equally beautiful.

The trail is well-maintained, but good footwear is a must. Flip flops won't cut it. :)

The cable bridge is really fun to try as well. Definitely added to the experience.

All in all, a fantastic 1/2 day outing!

“Beautiful walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

A lovely 2hr romp, beautiful scenery, not too exhausting and a rope bridge across the river should provide ample entertainment for those brave enough to cross and spectators :o)

“Very rewarding walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

A lovely starter hike - although good sturdy boots are a recommendation as some of the rocks are sharp
Some patches where care is required particularly when the weather has been wet.
The view of the falls is well worth the walk and the river in the gorge below is impressive with lots of different rocks and trees to look at.

“awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Had a beautiful walk here on bright but freezing day. GOt to the waterfall which was iced over and stunningly beautiful. Kids loved the wire bridge that was a real test of nerves for the height haters. Watch out for the slippy rocks if you go for the more normal river crossing.

“Short hike, with great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is a comfortable no stress hike that is only a few miles round trip. I've done this in winter and summer and it was equally fun. The wire bridge at the water passing adds fun for those brave enough to give it a try. The falls themselves are beautiful and offer good photo opportunities. Nice day trip for a picnic.
