Information on Glen Nevis 

In Glen Nevis, there are delightful walks to satisfy the low-level hiker and photographer. One such walk is a hike through the gorge in the Glen , where the River Nevis cascades and tumbles down from the surrounding mountains, on its way to the sea

Waterfall at Glen Nevis

This walk is very easy but good footwear is recommended. Serious walkers can park their cars in Braveheart car park or at the Ionad Nibheis Centre near the entrance to theGlen, whilst whose preferring a much shorter walk can begin at the Lower Falls car park. If you only have a couple of hours, then you can park at the head of theGlen, near the entrance to the gorge. On your way into this most beautiful of Highland Glens you are bound to see some of the local Highland cattle grazing.


Before the gorge, the Lower Falls are the first real show of power the river can offer and during wet periods these waterfalls are extremely impressive as they thunder below your feet under the bridge.

Once in the Gorge you will be delighted with wild flowers, gently cascading streams and some superb views both ahead of you and behind. After a short but pleasant walk over rocky ground the gorge opens up to reveal a hanging valley with Steall Falls pouring into the scene from high above.

A further 15 minute walk brings you to the wire-rope bridge where you can see Steall Falls at close hand, and test your balance and nerve by crossing the river on the steel rope bridge. Don't forget your camera and film, waterproofs and midge repellant!
