About

Eight mighty waterfalls and wide loch views

There’s a fine series of eight waterfalls here, and from May to June you can find bluebells carpeting the woodland. Just by the car park you can sit and watch red squirrels bustling among the trees, while further up the hill there are great views over Loch Linnhe.

More information

You’ll be following in the footsteps of 18th century soldiers along this trail: it follows part of the network of roads built to control the Highlands after the Jacobite Rebellion of 1715. They’re named after General Wade, who directed the project – this road was actually built by his successor, General Caulfield.
