Falls of Glomach

A breathtaking Highland waterfall cuts through Scotland’s wildest countryside

Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit to the estate – your safety is our priority. This means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep everyone safe. Please read our Guide on what to expect before you set off as well as our Top 10 tips for visiting countryside places.

The main route to the falls is from Morvich via the Bealach na Sroine pass, which is over 500m (1,800ft) in altitude. Visitors should be suitably equipped for a remote mountain environment, including appropriate clothing and footwear as well as a map and compass.

There’s no phone reception for most of the way – please make sure someone else knows your plans before setting off.

For more information about planning your visit, please see the drop-down Facilities below or our frequently asked questions.

If you’d like to speak to us, we can be contacted by email on or telephone 01599 511231.

Facilities & access

  • The paths leading to the Falls of Glomach are not suitable for wheelchairs.

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

Dogs welcome

National Trust for Scotland rangers offer a guided walk to see the falls – please telephone for more details.

Car parking is available at the Kintail Ranger Office at Morvich Farm, from where it’s a 6-hour return walk to the falls.

At the Ranger Office at Morvich Farm, there are display panels providing information on the adjoining properties of West Affric and Kintail & Morvich.

Enjoy the challenging walk to one of the country’s finest waterfalls, in one of the remotest and least spoilt areas of the Highlands.

Experienced hikers might want to try the route along Glen Elchaig, a 14-mile round hike taking approximately 8 hours. Leave the car at the Ling Bridge by Loch Long. This can be shortened by using a bike for part of the way. Beware – the path from Glen Elchaig to the falls is precarious.
