Harry Potter fans will recognise this waterfall and the glen it sits within from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I was there when they filmed it but sadly they airbrushed me out 😂. Very attractive riverside walk. You can select the car park...More

We took a taxi to the lower falls and hiked to the higher parking lot. Many hikers walk along the asphalt road, but you can also take the more scenic and quiet hiking path on the other side of the river. When you encounter a...More

This is an approx 40 min trek. Start at the car park at the end of Glen Nevis drive, and walk the short distance to the sound of the waterslide. Beyond this the trek takes you through Birch and Hazel woods, and pinkish granite. The...More

The Steall waterfall is a 3/4 hour hike from the top carpark. ...but both the walk and the falls are breathtaking. Seriously. I even went across the wobbly cable bridge... and back. That got the heart going, let me tell you. Don't miss this.

We passed this at the start of our walk and it was raining hard so the waterfall looked very powerful and worth the walk on a good path - note it changes after the falls. The wire bridge is something else - great fun!

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.
