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

The falls include around 900 hectares (2,200 acres) of surrounding land, including all of Gleann Gaorsaic to the south, which means ‘the glen of the loud bird calls’.
