As you can see in the pictures below, a nice path has been set up:
Admiring the Falloch Falls
First you see it from the front at a higher level. The waterfall from the Falloch river 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 🙂
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
