Invermoriston Falls

Highland | Invermoriston | Waterfall | ★★

[Invermoriston Falls]

The translation of the River Moriston from its Gaelic roots into English as River of the waterfalls is a big clue that it might be worth stopping off here. Fortunately most people don't speak Gaelic and drive right by, ensuring this beauty spot remains relatively quiet by local standards. Here, the burn tumbles haphazardly across bands of rock in a determined effort to reach nearby Loch Ness. These aren't the highest waterfalls in the region by any means, but they're a pleasant place for a short wander. Even the local Highland Cows are friendly!

Location & info

📌 Invermoriston Falls ★★
Off the A82 immediately south of Invermoriston, G.R.: NH 421164 ///shook.asks.highly
Always open | Free

💬 From the main village car park on the A82 at G.R.: NH 420167 ///dinosaur.pelted.shoelaces it's a 5-min walk to the nearest rapids. Follow the clear path south, parallel to the main road at first but soon heading away to the left. The first sets of rapids appear soon after reaching the river, but it's worth continuing a little further to explore the rest of them.
