We visited on a damp and misty day and the falls did not have much water going over, this we learnt was because most of the water from the upstream river is channeled through an unseen hydro electric plant. It is still worth a visit...More

Clearly the amount of water going over the falls depends on the recent weather and when we went it was pretty spectacular. If you're not a hardened walker the way up through the woods may be a bit taxing but the rewards are worth it....More

We had travelled by boat , touring the Caledonian Canal, but you cannot moor and access the Falls. Disappointed as we had read about them and wanted to visit.

Slightly disappointed with the falls. Don’t get me wrong there was plenty of views to see of the surroundings but when we got to the falls it was more of a dribble less like a waterfall.

This was a hard trip down to see the falls its called the 200 steps but we really enjoyed it if you went further down you could see what's left of a old Aluminium factory which supplied parts in WW2

The trek to the viewing area can be quite slippery so wear some sturdy shoes however this is one of the better waterfalls in the area (plodda falls no1!)

- Parking is just opposite to the entrance and free. - There is also a cafe and shop by the parking space. - There is a beautiful, wooded, and steep descent down. - There are steps and handles where needed, but it can get muddy...More

Park in the carpark at the top of the falls and walk down. Can be a bit muddy if rain. Call at Cameron Tea rooms for lovely food. Very good breakfast and lunch which is served until 3.30. Open for tea and cake until 5.

Went on one-day trip around Loch Ness (with Rabbies tour - excellent!!) and we stopped at this waterfall. You walk down path from road and coffee shop - amazing!

Very good Waterfall - would love to see it in full spate. There are a number of guardians watching you from the rock faces opposite ... a very special place and worth the walk from the campsite.

Just over 30 minutes depending on traffic, the road gets narrow in places and you have to stop at 'passing places' but it's a lovely drive down that side of the Loch and you get a nice view of Urquhart Castle

Parking was pretty plentiful. We were there in September and there was ample parking. Can't recall charge which means it wasn't expensive! Yes it's a circular walk- there and back again. I'd allow at least an hour... More
