Description

Sitting right at the end of Glen Nevis, this is perhaps the most popular day hike in the region.

It starts at a large (and often busy!) carpark and is clearly signposted, along with more distant objectives such as Corrour Station and Kinlockleven. The trail is generally quite rough and rocky, but always clear and easy to follow.

Initially the route passes through forests but it quickly emerges out into the wide and open valley which houses the falls.

Once in the main valley the falls are immediately visible, assuming the weather is good.

Head straight towards them! Having got as close as you can (which is a point on the path where it bends left and crosses the river beneath the falls), admire all 105 metres of the falls.

They're the 3rd highest falls in Scotland and they can look even bigger when water levels are high! Retrace your steps back to the car or - if you're looking for a challenge - continue up the Glen to one of the Munros that tower above it.
