Glen Nevis and Steall Falls Eco-friendly Tour

Go on an Adventure Exploring Steall Waterfall and Gorge

The best way of exploring the magic of Glen Nevis and Steall Falls is on foot. Often Steall falls is mistakenly called Glen Nevis waterfall, if your looking for the Glen Nevis waterfall you are in the right place.

Our journey will begin by meeting the N42 at Fort William Bus Station at 0930hrs. This service is run by family ran local business Sheil Buses. This summer service starting on the 5th July 2021 provides an important public transport link for tourists to Glen Nevis from Fort William. By using this service we will be helping to ensure it continues in the summers to come. We will also be reducing traffic impact and air pollution in this popular area.

Sheil Buses will take us to the start of our hike at the Lower Falls in Glen Nevis. The journey takes around 20 minutes.

Our timing for the return journey will depend on the day, how fast we walk and how much lingering we do. The options for returning are 1400hrs, 1500hrs, and 1700hrs.

Our day will be around 6hrs exploring the wonders of Glen Nevis and the wonderful Waterfall. The walk takes around 5 hrs at a very leisurely pace so there will be plenty of snack stops. There will also be plenty of photo opportunities to catch that epic waterfall. If you are looking for something a little shorter and suitable for the whole family then please take a look at my Glen Nevis and Steall Falls family adventure.

The guided walk itself is around 13 km long.

Even on a rainy day Glen Nevis and the waterfall are spectacular. There is plenty to look at from a stunning gorge,native woodland and views to the higher mountains surrounding the glen.

We can even cross the wire bridge if people are feeling brave to get right into the bottom of steall waterfall.
