Excellent well laid out path with steps in places, affords good views at different points along the route, if you are quiet enough you may spot Red Squirrel

Two hilly paths that lead you to two vantage points to the falls. Steep at times but the paths have been split into small steps and grab rails along most of the path. I guess the main point is to take your time and ensure...More

I liked the stop at the Hillside Path but it's just another waterfall. If you've seen a lot of them---you'll be underwhelmed. It's pretty and I think they may have done some filming for "Monarch of the Glen" here? Quick stop though is enough.

Easy to start from the Foyers car park. First stop the water falls, then look for red squirrels (we failed, though we saw a suicidal one on the road earlier), then the bridges, the power station and finally Loch Ness.

The path which goes through trees is all right when you are going downhill but can be steep on the way back up, the steep bits have steps to make it easier. This path also takes you to the falls of foyer.
