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.

  • Firstly, I made the mistake of parking at the lower car park, so added about 45 minutes to my walk each way. From top car park (a smaller car park), it's about a 30 minute walk each way. Impressive...

  • What an amazing place to visit! Spectacular road and views on the way to the waterfall, lovely Ben Nevis. Moderate walk, only 6.5 km return, but what a view! Beautiful mountains, lots of waterfalls all way around. Rope bridge to get closer to the waterfall, a bit of adrenaline there. It is a "must visit" place and I was very surprised that we not been here yet! Highly recommended!
  • Absolutely stunning site. Parking was easy to get to. The walk was relatively easy and once down by the falls the scene was beautiful, we went over the wire bridge and down by the falls. Weather overcast but doesn't take away from the breathtaking views. Would be absolutely amazing to have a summer picnic here.
