A nice little walk down to 2 different view points, not really worth a special visit but well worth stopping to take a look if you are in the area. There is also a longer walk if you turn right at the first junction. There...More

Such a beautiful drive past lochs and under brooding hills to end up at the little village of Foyers, 20 minutes from Fort Augustus. There are a couple of tracks to the upper Falls for good viewpoints and photo opportunities. There are also tracks through...More

5 mins walk from our hotel, this was such a beautiful walk through woodlands heavy with the scent of pines. Lots of steps and a bit of clambering so not suitable for those not so good on their feet or disabled. The falls themselves were...More

A steep walk up and down but not too far and the two viewpoints both worth a visit. Excellent walk round the woodlands further down the valley well worth doing, but wherever you go there is a climb back up to the top!

Highly recommend the steps to see this. The upper view was good but walking down to the lower view provided a spectacular sight of nature at its best. Highly recommended.

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
