Create an itinerary including Steall Waterfall
Put on your best walking shoes and explore the area surrounding Steall Waterfall, Scotland’s second-highest waterfall. The falls, featuring a single drop of 120 m (390 ft), can best be seen from the path running through the Nevis Gorge. The path is clear and well marked, with just a few rougher sections easily crossed in good footwear. As you walk through this wilderness area noted for its diverse plant and animal life, take a little time to enjoy the blossoming flowers and the cascading streams of clear water. Upon reaching the famous waterfall, test your balance by crossing the river on the steel rope bridge. Bring lots of bug repellant, waterproof clothes, and don’t forget to charge your camera.

  • At the end of a long drive down a country road, getting there is itself worth the effort. We did the walk on a wet afternoon, making some of the rockier parts of the walk feel tricky. Overall...

  • Amazing free Waterfall! About a 30 minute careful casual walk from the car park! Caution is needed on some areas as very slippery and wet! But beautiful scenery once you arrive at the opening 😍
  • Great upper glen, easy hike, dog walkers were taking it. Great view of Nevis. Epic. The road up.to.the car park is lovely in itself too. I understand why we saw backpackers and hikers walk from town.
