Picturesque drive on the way up. Very accessible walk to the base of the falls, not too challenging going up. Men, women and children of all ages were having a go. Looks like something you'd expect to see in Game of Thrones!

Short but lovely walk, over easy ground to a waterfall. Really enjoyed this even in the cold and rain. Must have walking shoes and rain jackets.
