We'll take you to this amazing place of a gorge of the River Clyde, where waterfalls come after waterfalls and even when you think you have seen it all, there's more. The Falls of Clyde is a Wildlife Reserve, an UNESCO World Heritage Site in Scotland with breathtaking scenery, a beautiful woodland walk, where you can hear birds chirping from everywhere and if we are lucky enough we'll see some badgers or even otters enjoying the surroundings just like you or me. There are over a 100 species of birds who live here, including dippers, ravens and kingfishers. The woodland walk does need good guidance throughout which takes you alongside the gorge and we can even take you to the other side of the river, which is less known and gives you a better view of some of the waterfalls. Some parts of the walk take more guidance than others, as you might end up taking longer on the hike if you don't know the place as much as the locals. Plenty of lookouts where you can stop and take photos and take lovely memories with you or if you get a bit tired, we can definitely takes some breaks, so you can catch your breath. This is quite a long hike, about 3 hours, so you'll get lots of exercise.
Hi Everyone ! My name is Ferenc and I am a very outdoorsy person. Being a Scuba Diver, nature is really close to my heart and any free time I have I always spend somewhere hiking, diving or travelling. I have been travelling around Scotland for many years, have been to lots of different islands, lochs and mountains and I must say, Scotland always amazes me wherever I go. The Falls of Clyde is one my favourite places where I go hiking a lot as it's a peaceful, right in the middle of nature type of hike and I can guarantee you that you'll get an unforgettable experience by coming to this place.
We'll go to the Waterfalls of the River Clyde, which is a Wildlife Reserve and has a scenic woodland walk alongside it. Being right in the heart of nature, you cannot get closer to it than this, with lots of picturesque waterfalls, the place is teaming with wildlife, different types of birds singing all around and if we are lucky, we might see some badgers or otters taking a sunbath. It's quite a good long hike and truly Scottish scenery.
This is quite a long hike, over 2 hours long, so you'll need to have some energy for it. If someone gets tired, we do take breaks and you can even decide to stop alongside and wait for us coming back.
