A short and beautiful walk through the forest to the waterfall was very much enjoyed by all this halfterm. The weather helped but I'm sure it's as lovely in any weather. Well worth a stop. The walk back up is a little more taxing but I can highly recommend taking it is easy and stopping regularly to take in the... More

Gorgeous woodland walks to Foyers falls...maybe see a red squirrel if you are lucky as they are protected in the reservation site..

Driving around Loch Ness is a scenic drive often, but as anywhere to get a fuller experience you cannot beat a walk. We stopped at the Falls of Foyers as there a car park and café there. Its a long walk down and remember that as far down as you go, its the same distance back up again! The pathway... More

We walked from the edge of Loch Ness up through the village and forest to the falls. There are some good views of the village and the falls along the well marked tracks. There is a pub come restaurant at the top of the walk to cool ones thirst.

My husband and I just went to the Falls of Foyers this morning and had such a great time there. The Falls are very close to the parking lot. A few hundreds meter away only and you reach the upper view of the Falls. Then you can walk to the lower view, it is not very far. Then we chose... More

Only a short walk from our hotel in Foyers we found the roadside entrance signed to these falls. The path was steep but well fenced to prevent falls into the magnificent gorge, the steps were well made with wooden edges but there were occasional rock outcrops requiring care. The descent was easy but the return upwards required some energy. Not... More

On our way down Loch Ness you come across the Falls of Foyers. Car park and café on the road before you descend quite a steep path descent to two levels of the falls. Well worth the climb back up afterwards.

Location is just off the main road at Foyers. Steep climb down stairs but well constructed and easy to get down. The falls themselves are magnificent. There are a few falls down the path. The scenery on route down is breath taking.

It's a nice short hike from the great little cafe along the road to the falls. When you get to the falls.....stop......just stare at the falling water for, say 20-30 seconds, then move your eyes to the right to look at the rocks. What you see is amazing...called the Foyers Effect......it's a treat! So are the yummy cakes served at... More
