Neat but time consuming.

Follow the road past the Ben Nevis tourist center (Glen Nevis) where the roads winds down the valley until you eventually get to the first car park, i suggest parking here, as the main car park at the beginning of the route is very small with little room to move a large vehicle, such as a van or 4X4.
From there follow the well defined path until you reach a high meadow with the falls directly infront of you. Stunning views along the way of granite gorge and white water. This route has little climb and is relatively flat and easy under foot. We even saw someone do it in heels!

This trail is definitely not easy, but not terribly hard either. Wear proper clothing and shoes and you'll be set. Took about 25-30 minutes to get up to the waterfall area. Gorgeous scenery and view of the river as you climb upwards. Our kids under 10 were able to do this trail as well.

I would really recommend Steall Falls to anyone looking for a shorter, moderately difficult walk. It offers stunning views of Glen Nevis and the falls are beautiful (although I didn’t dare cross the wire bridge to get a better look). I rate it moderately difficult due to some steep rocky bits without much of a path to follow, but any reasonably fit person could do it. Many reviews state hiking boots are a must but I was absolutely fine in trainers with a good grip.

We found this waterfall by chance this spectacular waterfall is situated in Glen Nevis near Fort William, Highland, Scotland. It is Scotland's second highest waterfall with a single drop of 120 metres. The fall can be viewed from the path that runs through the Nevis Gorge, an area owned by the John Muir Trust which manages the area for its wilderness qualities. The Walk which felt like walking around a mountain it is quite rocky and steep in parts but well worth the walk. The waterfall is in a valley and feels like the land that time forgot.

I don’t know about others, how they consider the journey to Steall waterfall, but for us was boring. I’ve been in many places in the mountains and thinking about this one in particular, I’d call it a very simple but uninformative path.
Thee aren’t signs to inform about the distance, or the approximate time. One sign I’ve found somewhere on the way saying something like “15m to Kinlochleven” and 2 more directions. I would call even this one confusing as 15m could be miles or minutes.
After a walk of approximately 40 minutes from the Lower Falls waterfall, one can reach the end of the road where there is a parking for probably 15 cars. To get there driving you must cross a few wobbly bridges that hardly car sustain a small car. I wouldn’t recommend trying to get there with a minibus!!
From the final parking, a few meters away, a small informative board mentions that it’s a dangerous path to the Steall Waterfall. You better believe it and be careful while climbing the last portion of your trip.
I recommend trying to get there when isn’t raining or after the rain as one can slip over the rocks and getting help won’t be very easy.
One you reach the waterfall I could say it’s relaxing to enjoy the view.
This journey is probably recommended to trained hikers as isn’t the easiest for an office person.
Have fun!
