Route Outline

These falls have been called the Hidden Falls, as they are difficult to access, and even more difficult to see, and more than a few people who have set out to see them have failed! They are not the highest falls in Britain, that honour belongs to the Eas a Chual Aluinn (200 metres - 658ft) in Sutherland, but the Falls of Glomach boast the biggest single drop of 113 metres or 375ft and are far and away the most impressive. The name Glomach means gloomy, and these falls can certainly be that in poor weather.
