The Falls of Glomach is one of the highest waterfalls in Britain, with a drop of 113m (370ft), set in a steep narrow cleft in remote Highland country.

The falls border Kintail, which was donated to the National Trust for Scotland in 1944 and incorporated West Affric in 1993.

It can be reached only on foot - the best approach is from the Dorusduain car park (Forest Enterprise) two miles off the north section of the loop in the old A87.

The five-mile uphill path to the falls requires a reasonable level of fitness and rewards visitors with stunning Highland views and atmospheric misty conditions. We recommend you allow five hours for the round trip.

Or, for very fit and experienced walkers, leave the car by the Ling bridge, at the north end of Loch Long, and take the long route along Glen Elchaig before making the steep climb to the Falls. Allow 8 hours for the 7-mile hike.
