>  Trip 2023   >  Steall Falls

With one child somewhat under-the-weather, it was a smaller than usual walking party that headed out to visit Steall Falls, the second-highest waterfall in Britain, in the shadow of Ben Nevis.

Compared to the Hidden Valley, it was a pretty easy path, but there were still enough scrambles to keep things interesting.

No ropes? No problem.

The waterfalls drop 120 metres into the wonderfully named “Waters of Nevis” river, which flows out into the Loch a few miles away.

The riverbed was an excellent spot for some rock-bashing.
Walkers aren’t the only users of the paths here.

It was a lovely walk :(so much so that we probably would have done it again the following day as a whole family if the recovery from sickness had been quicker), and would probably be extra-special later in the year, once the foliage is more pronounced. We’ll just have to come back!
