Sightseeing
You can either do short walks from the main car park to view the falls, or a longer walk through the woods by parking at Contin Woods, or Loch Kinellan by Strathpeffer. Pleasant woodland walks, and from July to September you can watch the salmon jumping up the falls and salmon ladder. There's another trail to view rock so it's well worth exploring.
