Worth doing the full walk and visiting the iron age round house, as you see other less visited views of the falls.

A really nice walk. A little steep in places but my 3 & 5 year olds managed it no bother. Once at the top there's a lovely over hanging built area to take photos. We saw buzzards up there. There's some picnic benches on the...More

Simple circular walk from the village of Whiting - plenty of parking along the front. The falls are pretty dramatic and with the walk. Giants graves are interesting to see - there is an information board. Going up is quite strenuous but not too hard.

We were lucky enough to visit here during our tour on the Mogabout Safari. It's breath-taking, and if you are walking in area then make this a point to visit.

The walk to the falls doesn’t take long at all, maybe 40min, but can be steep in areas. Would be managed easily by people of all ages. The great weather recently means there was just a trickle remaining of the waterfall but it was still...More

This is a great walk; not too long, not difficult. The views of the waterfall were fantastic from the viewing platform even though we visited during a very dry period. They must be spectacular after rain. It's worth extending the walk to the Giants graves...More

Walk very well signposted, i had reasearched using walkhighlands prior and the guide was spot on. Quite a steep climb to the falls but well worth the effort. We then walked further, had our picnic at the top and visited the giants graves before following...More

Walked here in a Scottish heatwave as our whole week was glorious weather. Lovely scenic walk up the falls with photo opportunity every step. The falls were lovely as always albeit a bit of a slow flow due to not much rain all month. View...More
