Nice wee walk with a smashing reward at the end with both a stunning waterfall and a wire rope bridge that is a must!!!

You will read all range of evaluations on the difficulty of the path climbing up to the top, and I think this is down to 1) that this is subjective and 2) that this is accessible to all level of expertise. As many other says I would just recommend to wear appropriate footwear and suggest avoiding bringing small kids as slippery. The path starts slowly, soon get steep up to the top, to then reach the upper fields where you admire the fall after another short walk. If you are up to it you can then cross the river on the famous three cables bridge, but not needed unless that you really want to and both ways you will enjoy the place and the view. Car park isn't huge so as an alternative you could either park at the parking available before the Glen Nevis Rope Bridge or take the bus from Fort William that equally stops there. This is the park for the lower falls and to reach the higher one you will need to walk up, using the same one lane tiny road used by the cars, but it could avoid useless stress during peak season. Enjoy it

Slightly challenging for someone who is not as fit as they could be but definitely achievable. Children would need to be supervised as there are risks of falling of the steep edges. However, with care taken this is a worthwhile walk which takes about 45 minutes from the Ben Nevis car park. Sight of the waterfall is the main goal but there is also a challenging rope bridge over the river which my 65 year young husband could not resist. Well worth a visit. Take a drink and relax by the river for a while before returning to the car park. Also, take insect repellent. D

I agree with the last review. I had no concern at all with the height. I was a bit concerned starting the hike due to a few of the other reviews. I don't love heights. The last thing I want on a hike is to be on a small ledge high above the ground. But the path is wide and I found nothing to be uncomfortable with. I actually had to take notice on the way back from the hike where the spots were that others may have deemed a bit scary. I do understand the fear of heights can vary greatly. I think it is a non-issue on this hike for most.
