Falls of Edinample

Stirling | Lochearnhead | Waterfall | ⛔
⚠ We believe this waterfall is no longer accessible - reports welcome

[Falls of Edinample]

This idyllic and impressive waterfall is less than 100 metres from the road along the south side of Loch Earn, but being completely unsigned and hidden from view, it's missed by most passing cars. Parking arrangements are slightly tricky and if someone has arrived before you, prepare yourself for a longer walk from the next safe parking spot. After picking your way down to the base of the falls from the east side of the road bridge, the only thing sharing your view of the 60 foot cascade is Edinample Castle: a fairytale (private) tower house built in the 16th century and restored in recent decades.

  1. Went there two days ago (Sept 19) and it's no longer possible to get there. The viewing point and path were washed away and the owners of the castle have now registered it as private garden, so no right to roam. It's dangerous now. Sorry but this one is no more.

    1. Thanks for the update Ricky. What a shame!

    2. As its in Scotland under Scots law you can walk anywhere as no land is private in Scotland, that case would differ over the border though :)

    3. Hi G McCallum,
      You are correct in terms of as having a so-called right to roam responsibly - although that doesn't mean you can walk anywhere, as there are exceptions such as the private garden around a house (and several others). Whether access is still permitted depends on the local surroundings.

      We haven't had the opportunity to revisit since new building works have taken place, so can't be certain that access is still responsible. Next time we're in the area, we'll try to have a look - but in the meantime, we're trusting the judgement of the previous poster who was able to visit.
