Steall Falls in Glen Nevis

In Glen Nevis, there are delightful walks to satisfy the low-level hiker and photographer - as alternative things to do if the weather is too bad to walk up the Ben Nevis footpath. One such walk is a hike through the gorge in Glen Nevis, where the River Nevis cascades and tumbles down from the surrounding mountains, on its way to the sea.

This walk is relatively easy but good footware is recommended. Walkers can park their cars in Braveheart carpark or at the Ionad Nibheis Centre near the entrance to the Glen, whilst whose preferring a much shorter walk can begin at the Lower Falls carpark. If you only have a couple of hours, then you can park at the head of the Glen, near the entrance to the gorge.  On your way into this most beautiful of Highland Glens you are bound to see some of the local Highland cattle grazing.

Before the gorge, the Lower Falls are the first real show of power the river can offer and during wet periods these waterfalls are extremely impressive as they thunder below your feet under the bridge.

Once in the Gorge you will be delighted with wild flowers, gently cascading streams and some superb views both ahead of you and behind. After a short but pleasant walk over rocky ground the gorge opens up to reveal a hanging valley with Steall Falls pouring into the scene from high above.

A further 15 minute walk brings you to the wire-rope bridge where you can see Steall Falls at close hand, and test your balance and nerve by crossing the river on the steel rope bridge. Don't forget your camera and film, waterproofs and midgy repellant!
