Rha waterfall

Skye | Uig | Waterfall | ★★★

[Rha waterfall]

Most people heading to Uig on Skye are bound either for the famous (and famously overcrowded) Fairy Glen, or for the Western Isles by ferry from the village harbour. This scattered port settlement is no beauty, but it does boast a second nearby beauty spot in the form of Rha waterfall. This double fall on the wooded River Rha looks spectacular after heavy rain, and you'll probably have it to yourself even in high season. Keep an eye on the skies while you're visiting - we've seen eagles lazily circling above Uig Bay on two separate occasions.

💬 From the street parking near the A87 / A855 junction at G.R.: NG 397642 ///monument.liquid.gloves it's a 5-min walk to the falls. Head briefly west along the A855 to the signpost for Rha Woods on the right. A slightly muddy path with lots of steps leads about 200 m to the falls.
