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.
The falls are a long way from the nearest road, to the surprise of many visitors who arrive at Morvich each year expecting to hop out of their car and see them.
The best approach is via the Dorusduain woodland plantation, which is privately owned by Inverinate Estate (Tel: 01599 530055). Car parking is available at the National Trust for Scotland car park at Morvich Farm. From here it is a 6 mile walk to the falls via Innis a’ Chrotha and Dorusduain (12 mile round trip). Beyond the Dorusduain plantation the walk crosses high ground on Inverinate Estate on a hill path maintained by the National Trust for Scotland. It requires a reasonable level of fitness and rewards visitors with stunning Highland views and atmospheric misty conditions. We recommend that you allow six hours for the round trip from Morvich.

Or, for very fit and experienced walkers, park at the Killilan car park at the east 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 from Killilan (14 mile return), although a mountain bike can be very useful to cut down time on the Glen Elchaig track.
