“Britain's answer to Nepal?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

It is certainly very pretty if not quite as mountainous as Nepal. The Nevis Gorge walk that leads you to the Falls reminded me of scenes from the movie Deliverance. Also akin to the Samaria gorge walk on Crete but nowhere near as demanding. Thoroughly recommended.

“steall waterfall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Worth the walk though wear correct foot wear as the walk entails a steep path, slippery and rocky in many places.

“Well worth the walk ......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

I had been here a few years before but wanted to share this with my family whilst we were in the area.
As others have said getting there is not just parking in a car park and a quick stroll and you are there! It took us about an hour there and little quicker on the way back. The weather when we went was not great and was raining lightly all the time and I am so glad we all had appropriate footwear!
The walk itself can be quite narrow in places with quite large drops on one side but safe enough with a little care taken.
When you get to the waterfall it really is amazing, we did not go across the river to it however as we were already getting eaten alive by midges as we had forgotten to spray before we left!
I would recommend this to anyone, if you are visiting the highlands this is a must ..... and it's FREE!!

“Family adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Beautiful walk which the kids enjoyed - but watch out for the midges! We were lucky to be there when it was sunny and dry but is was slippery in some places, we didn't wear 'speciality' clothing or footwear but managed the walk by taking care.
