“The Falls of Glomach are perhaps the most magnificent waterfalls in Britain, with a single leap of 113 metres (370 feet) The Falls of Glomach (Glomach means gloomy) are 375 feet high and as such are the highest falls in the country. However the walk up to the falls is spectacular and there is plenty to take in on the your journey. The falls are at the end of a 2.5 mile (approximate) moderate uphill walk from the car park at Dorusduain on the old A87. Most people of ordinary fitness take their time and allow around 5 hours for the round trip. The falls are best after rain however it should be noted that thick mist regularly hangs over the hills in these conditions, especially near the end of the track leading to the gully where the falls are and its very easy for the inexperienced to get lost if the mist comes down. Be careful and preferably go up with someone who has been before and knows the way. In the summer on good weather days the water may not be as spectacular but the views are great! There are Ranger guided walks with The National Trust of Scotland up to the falls in the summer months.”
