Paradise is what a fellow walker described Steall falls as whilst we were walking there and he was right! How beautiful to see the water cascading down the mountain side and to climb across the rocks to get really close. As the temperature that day...More

This was one of the best hikes we've ever taken. It is not too strenuous and the scenery is breathtaking. We seriously could not understand why it is so under the radar. It is one of Scotland's greatest gems.

Great fun free activity to do with the kids! The walk to it is fairly straightforward despite the severe warning signs! Beautiful views & waterfall is spectacular. Def worth the hike!

Amazing walk. Rough under foot at first with some climbing involved then opens out into a beautiful meadow with rambling river and waterfall. Suitable for all levels but definitely need good footwear and not sure I would take very young children ie under 5

It will depend on the day but July is peak holiday season so it might still be busy if it is a nice evening.

No, you have walk up the path. I wouldnt take a 4 year old up the path unless they had done something like this before, one of two parts of the path are a little tricky/wet slimy. You would have to hold his hand the entire... More

There is a bus, which stops before the path to the Steall Falls. You should plan 3 hours for the path and the visit. If you are short on time, take a cab to the beginning of the path and schedule a time for pickup.
