Eas an t Strutha Ghil

Eas an t Strutha Ghil is a low stream waterfall opposite of the more known Eas a’ Chual Aluinn, which is said to be the highest waterfall in Scotland. Both waterfall are officially named waterfalls but I think Eas an t Strutha Ghil waterfall has less volume. On the other hand Eas an t Strutha Ghil waterfall is supposed to be 290 meters high. So this should be the highest waterfall in Scotland???

Eas an t Strutha Ghil waterfall is located near Kylesku, 50 kilometers north of Ullapool in Scotland (United Kingdom).
