The Falls of Glomach are a spectacular, atmospheric destination of natural beauty and breathtaking scenery.
Bordering Kintail, in Ross-shire, the falls are accessible by foot only on a spectacular trek through wild and wonderful Highland Scotland.
Though not the highest, the Falls of Glomach are perhaps the most spectacular waterfalls in Britain, falling in a single leap of 113 m (370 ft). Glomach, meaning ‘gloomy’, is the perfect name for the falls which are often shrouded in a spectacular mist.
The falls are in an area possessing wondrous natural beauty and breathtaking scenery. On a clear day you are treated to magnificent views of the falls and the picturesque surrounding countryside and, when the weather is not so sunny, you are treated to some wonderfully moody misty scenes around the falls.
Situated in the Scottish Highlands, near to the Kyle of Lochalsh where you can cross the bridge to the Isle of Skye, the falls make a worthwhile stop for anybody on a hiking tour of the area. When visiting the Scottish Highlands, you will be assured of legendary hospitality of the local Highlanders, as well as some of the most dramatic and mountainous scenery that the British Isles have to offer.
There is a variety of accommodation available, including many camping and caravanning sites. You can access the area by rail or by road via the A87.
The Falls of Glomach are 18m E of Kyle of Lochalsh.
