The Falls of Falloch Scotland are an easy and popular stop in the Trossachs National Park on your way to Glencoe and the isles. The delicate waterfall (on most days) flows in a hidden enchanting pool surrounded by greenery.

INFO & PLANNING TIPS - Falls of Falloch Scotland
Falls of Falloch Access
As you can see in the pictures below, a nice path has been set up to walk from the carpark to the waterfall.
The Falls of Falloch
First you see it from the front at a higher level. The waterfall is 9 meter tall (30ft).
Most days it is a gentle flow surrounded by greenery. Quite enchanting! But if you go on a rainy day you could see it roar.
Falls of Falloch at water level
You can walk down to water level.
I have not seen any sign so I guess it is possible to swim in the pool. Just be careful with the current, don't swim when the waterfall is roaring - Some people had to be rescued before...
And remember this is Scotland: water is cold 🙂
This location, along with many other beautiful places, is included in my eBook: The Road Trip Guide - Scotland.
It is a practical tool to plan your trip with maps, photos, planning tips, GPS coordinates...
Cages viewpoint of the Falls of Falloch
If you want to get even closer to the waterfall, there is a caged walkway to a viewing platform from where you can see the work of erosion creating the pool.
They do not talk about fairies here (contrary to the Isle of Skye) but I was half-expecting to see some. LOL
