You can easily miss this great waterfall because it is not advertised very well! You go down a long narrow single track road to get to it and wonder if the road is ever going to end!! The walk to it is not very long...More

Good walking shoes required, a bit of scrambling over rocky places, excellent excercise for those up for it.

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.

My husband and I were in Fort William for a long weekend as a birthday present from our children. The Waterfall is spectacular and the water is crystal clear. It's so peaceful despite the water thundering down the hillside. You just have to be aware...More

We set out to find a different trailhead, but took a wrong turn. We ended up at the end of a ribbon road through beautiful country, and the beginning of this trail. The trail was challenging and very rocky, but the payoff was glorious! The...More

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.
