Magical waterfalls in Scotland

    Some photos taken from a recent walk to the Blackwater Reservoir near Kinlochleven where I have never seen so many waterfalls!

    I was going to say the Falls of Falloch, but that was the first one in the list! :smiley:

    I'm a huge waterfall fan, and I go hunting for unknown ones a lot in my spare time.

    Four of my five favourites haven't been mentioned above, so here they are:
    • Wailing Widow Waterfall, just south of Unapool in Sutherland
    • Clashnessie Falls, Clashnessie, near Lochinver/Achmelvich/Clachtoll
    • Bearreraig Waterfall, Isle of Skye
    • Loup of Fintry, Fintry, Stirlingshire
    • Bracklinn Falls, Calander, Stirlingshire (has been mentioned above)

    This is the Wailing Widow Waterfall

    This is the Bearreraig Waterfall, Skye

    This is the Loup of Fintry - there's much more to it than this photo suggests, so I've added a hyperlink above to show you more of it on it's Wikipedia :smile:

    This is the Bracklinn Falls - there's more of them to explore, and there's a beautiful bridge, which is where this photo was taken from, plus lots of woods to explore and walk.

    Hope this helps!

    Black Spout Waterfall in Pitlochry. You can stop and see this as you walk to Edradour Distillery.
    Best regards

    very nice photographs @willmackenzie. Thanks for including the link to the Loup of Fintry, the waterfalls look pretty cool. Not too far from where I work, so I may have to make a visit.  :)

    Thanks Dawn-Marie and Lyndsay  :)

    @VisitScotlandLyndsay: For the Loup of Fintry, I struggled the first time I went hunting for it, but basically you're looking for a passing place on the right of the road as you go up the hill from Fintry - it's maybe 2 miles-ish up the road? If you park in the passing place you'll see a wooden sign which points you the 1/4 mile to the Falls, the only issue is the sign is hard to read, so I drove past it first time  :D These are the exact co-ordinates: 56.050068, -4.149778 - if you pop those into Google Maps or a Sat Nav, you'll find it with the above knowledge. It's probably 20mins from Stirling city centre.

    It's an incredible place on a sunny day because the valley you look down, if you get up, close is very pretty, especially with a big blue sky and huge fluffy clouds.. If you go: enjoy!  <3

    Wow, stunning pictures!!! - some are too far for me but the Loup of Fintray I should definately be able to reach. I will put it to my walking buddies for one of our outings   :D

    I recently visited Pucks Glen in the Cowal Peninsula with @VisitScotlandLyndsay.  It was an amazing walk with a series of small waterfalls through a deep chasm.  It was stunning!  Here is a picture of @VisitScotlandLyndsay at one of the larger falls. :)

    My favourites (up to now) are:

    •  Falls of Clyde, just near New Lanark;
    • Black Spout Waterfall in Pitlochry;
    • Falls of Bruar.
    I simply was speechless in front of these natural beauties.
