Trip Planner: Europe / UK / Scotland / Scottish Highlands / Tomich / Plodda Falls
Plodda Falls (Gaelic: Eas Ploda) is a waterfall, situated 5 km south-west of the village of Tomich, near Glen Affric, in the Highlands of Scotland. The falls are 46 m high, and are on the Allt na Bodachan, near where it flows into the Abhainn Deabhag, which in turn joins with the River Affric to form the River Glass.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Plodda Falls by using our Tomich sightseeing planning site.
Plodda Falls are a popular tourist attraction. In 1880, a footbridge was built across the top of the falls, by Lord Tweedmouth, who owned the Guisachan estate. In 2005, the Forestry Commission found this bridge to be dangerous, and it was closed. It was replaced by a new viewing platform in 2009.

Stunning Falls but the drive to the car park was "interesting" !! Once off the main road there's a few miles of single track tarmac road (with the obligatory "passing points") but the last 2 miles to the car park is rough gravel, single track, strewn with very deep potholes ! However, once there and having reached the falls (15 minutes from the car park) it's all worth it. The view from the viewing platform at the top is very dramatic, but you have to follow the path down the side of the falls to get the view from the bottom - that is fantastic. Well worth the stress of getting there !!
The Plodda Falls is a beautiful and natural waterfall located in Scotland. The waterfall is situated in a picturesque forested area, surrounded by lush green vegetation, towering trees, and rugged cliffs. The water cascading down the falls is crystal clear and creates a soothing sound as it flows into the pool below. Visitors can hike to the top of the falls for a bird's-eye viewpoint. The Plodda Falls is a must-see destination for nature enthusiasts and those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Overall, I would highly recommend a visit to the Plodda Falls. The walk around the falls is lovely and the path is well maintained. It's a great place to take a picnic and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
