Falls of Falloch Map

The Falls of Falloch are a series of waterfalls and rapids located in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. The falls are formed by the River Falloch as it flows through a narrow gorge surrounded by steep hills and dense forest.


The Falls of Falloch are a popular destination for hikers and nature lovers, as there are several walking trails in the area that provide stunning views of the falls and the surrounding landscape. The falls themselves consist of a series of cascades and pools, with the largest waterfall dropping over 30 feet (9 meters) into a deep pool below. The Falls are a breathtaking natural wonder, with the cascading waters of the river flowing through a picturesque gorge surrounded by lush greenery and dramatic rocky cliffs. They're particularly impressive after a heavy rainfall, when the water flows even more powerfully.

You can access the Falls of Falloch via a car park located just off the A82 road between Crianlarich and Tyndrum. From there, a short walk leads to a viewing platform that provides a panoramic view of the falls. More adventurous visitors can follow a trail that leads down to the riverbank for a closer look at the cascades and pools, and we've shown this option on the line drawn here.

The Falls of Falloch are a peaceful and tranquil spot, offering a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Whether you're looking for a quiet walk in nature or a place to simply sit and enjoy the scenery, the Falls of Falloch offer a serene and calming environment.
