plus stout shoes with decent grip, especially if it's wet underfoot. The ground is uneven and the path tricky even though it is stepped in places. The path heads to the first of two viewing platforms - the second (and further) provides a better view (in my opinion). That is not to say that if you make it only to... 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.

We saw the waterfalls and then followed the path downhill lower Foyers. Over the bailey bridge there is a river path to the shores of Loch Ness. Well worth extending this walk to see this

Lovely walk down hill to the waterfalls through a forrest on a rainy day. This was an ideal walk as we were sheltered from the wind and rain.

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.

I used the forest walk to reach the Foyers Falls viewing areas the winding path is reasonably well made bit not suitable for wheelchairs or infirm it takes you to some nice viewing points along the valley of the Foyers river there are a few seats along the way to look over the valley finishing up at a rock platform...

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.

A very nice woodland walk and view places of the falls, can be accesable with disabilities with caution but the walk from back of hotel to falls pretty steep in some places but can access them from the road side to them is much easier
