Few can resist exclaiming out loud at the sight of a beautiful waterfall – and in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park there are many stunning falls to ooh and aah at.
We reveal seven lovely waterfalls to visit.
An Sruth Bàn translates as “the fair torrent” (the falls appear white against the dark rock) and are located near Corrow in Argyll & Bute.
The atmospheric falls can be discovered on the River Falloch during a short walk from a car park some 5km south of Crianlarich on the A82. You can enjoy the Falls of Falloch at closer range by visiting the ‘Woven Sound’ Scenic Route.
The impressive falls at the village of Killin are most magnificent when the river Dochart is in spate. When the water is low, the rush of the falls is still an exciting sight, especially as you can see the size of the huge rocks that litter the bed.
The Gaelic name for the waterfalls near Lochearnhead is Eas Aodann Ambail, which means “falls of the face of the cauldron”. It is reputed in fairylore that the tumbling water was the haunt of fairies.
The falls are situated in the Pass of Leny near the village of Kilmahog. When in full spate they create a tremendous sight – and sound – for walkers on the 4.75-mile Callander to Falls of Leny Circuit.
The Gaelic for Bracklinn is A’ Bhreac Linn, which means “dappled pool”. This tranquil spot boasting a sublime waterfall is found near the popular tourist town of Callander. *Please note that Bracklinn Bridge has been removed so the full Bracklinn Circuit walk cannot be completed. You can still walk to Bracklinn Falls but there is no access to the east side of the Falls.
Tumbling from the “hanging valley” of Loch Arklet and into the main glaciated valley that holds Loch Lomond, this waterfall inspired the Inversnaid poem by 19th century poet Gerard Manley Hopkins. Enjoy a stroll to the waterfall on the Arklet Trail.
