Steall falls

(An Steall Ban, Steall Waterfall, Nevis falls)

Steall falls (also named An Steall Ban, Steall Waterfall) is an impressive waterfall where the river Allt Coire a’ Mhail plunges down from Coire Dubb an Stell over 120 meters.

Steall falls can be found near Achriabhach/Glen Nevis, south of Fort Williams in Scotland (United Kingdom). Driving on the A82 at Fort Williams go south to Achriabhach / Glen Nevis. The first parking is at a small waterfall (gps 56.770147, -5.036791) but the road goes on. At the end of the road you can find a parking (gps 56.777428, -5.000835) for Glen Nevis.

From the parking there is a trail going east following the river Nevis. After a sharp curve there is a bridge. From here you already can see Steall falls.

Steall falls is one of Scotland’s highest waterfalls, with a total drop of 120 meters. The waterfall can be best viewed from the path that runs through the Nevis Gorge. An Steall Bàn means “The White Spout” in Gaelic.

The trail is easy and the surrounding very beautiful. The trail doesn’t actually end at the waterfall, but maybe a few hundred meters away from it. You can climb further up to thewaterfall, but there is no official trail. I think a roundtrip takes 60-90 minutes (3,5 kilometers) and is easy to do with limited ascend.
