Explore the Highest Waterfall in Scotland with 658 ft (200m) One-day tour

Our partner: Mckenzie Mountaineering - Guided Walking Adventures


This rough walk takes you into the heart of Assynt’s rocky landscape, past pretty lochans and streams to reach the top of Britain’s highest waterfall, Eas a’ Chual Aluinn.

We start this walk in Inchnadampf and make our way past some amazing views alongside Lochs and mountains before we ascend onto an alpine-style pass.

We zig-zag a well-built path down before we make our way off-path to the highest waterfall in Scotland.

This is a linear route and we still have a long way along rough terrain towards Loch na Gainmhich before we can relax. A fantastic day ends with another impressive waterfall before driving back to Ullapool.

Walk details: 9.4 miles, 10 km – Ascent 840 m, Descent 700 m – Walking time 5 – 6 h
