Falls of Foyers

During a weekend getaway to Inverness, I was looking for places to visit to fill my time and see the beautiful scenery that Scotland has to offer.

You can’t visit Inverness without stopping off to go Nessie spotting at Loch Ness and upon checking the map I spotted that we would pass the Falls of Foyers and thought it was worth a stop off.

Located along the Great Glen Way, a long-distance walking route that runs from Fort William to Inverness and is surrounded by lush forests and rolling hills, this stunning waterfall is a popular stopping point for hikers. It’s believed that the name of the falls was taken from an ancient Gaelic word that means “deer,” as it’s located in a region that used to be full of red deer.

Plunging around 100 meters into a deep gorge below, the River Foyers form the falls. With lovely views over the surrounding area, you’re offered a feast for your eyes and a reminder of just how spectacular nature can be.

It’s a place we can certainly give our “Big Stamp of Approval” but be warned you do need to be quite fit and able-bodied as to get to the falls you have to descend and climb a steep path with lots of steps.
