Archive photo: Steall Waterfall, Glen Nevis
View outside tent to the Steall Waterfall near Glen Nevis, West Highlands of Scotland
(Photo taken during an aborted trip to do the Lochaber traverse).
The Steall waterfall is some 120m high. It is said to be the second highest waterfall in Britain. Access to the falls is by a path through the Nevis Gorge. Normally the river through the gorge is fairly benign – I believe you can canyon through it – but the weekend we were there the river levels were spectacularly high and you would have drowned very easily, without a doubt.
The falls can be seen from Steall meadow, as above. To get right underneath them you have to cross a wire rope bridge across the river. It’s good fun and fairly easy. I don’t have any photos of it but this website has photos of the Steall rope bridge.
