Location Guide

Note:- Getting to this waterfall requires travelling some distance into a mountain area, you should not attempt this without being extremely good at map reading, and know what you are doing. You may be able to take a boat trip up to Loch Beag and see it from a distance, see the image below, and boat information under notes in the grid.

Said to be the tallest uninterrupted waterfall in Britain, it falls 658ft.

To get a complete view you need to climb a much higher mountain or to use a helicopter, although you can get views of part of it from a number of directions. The water flow is seasonal, some visiting in the summer have reported very little.
