We saw this on our way up Ben Nevis, checked it out afterwards & decided to find it. Parked in the furthest car park, then about 30 minutes of a lovely walk by the river. (Hold on to young children). Suddenly the narrow gorge opens...More

you have to walk about 45 minutes but it is very recommendable. The path is very easy to walk and the waterfall is simply spectacular

Nice walk along the River Newis, upward to the waterfall. Great nature and stunning views. Depending on the fitness level, choose the starting point.

We walked from the lower falls, the lower falls were very nice. We passed a section full of different mushrooms. It was fun to see pretty mushrooms. The walk is easy. Not much elevation gain. Just need to watch out for few spots of wet...More

Wonderful walk to a stunning waterfall. A little hard work in places but absolutely worth it. Our family ranged from 8 yrs to very active 73yrs and all managed the terrain well. There is a little cable bridge at the end, you do not have...More

My husband and I decided to set about walking to the Falls from our campsite which added about 10miles onto the walk, but you can drive right to the start of the path. Although a bit tricky in parts the walk takes you along a...More

So many people walking this trail, in varying states of preparedness. Skip the bridge and waterfall (except from a distance) and keep walking up the Glen.....a beautiful hike.

The Steall Waterfall is amazing and you can park not far from it, about 30min after you park, very easy one, too. I have only been there but I am sure there are plenty others!!

There might be some stepping stones in the river to cross, but they wew quite flooded when we were there. However you can watch the waterfall from across the river.
