Walking Scotland: The Plodda Falls, Glen Affric

A walk of waterfalls and autumnal colours.

The Plodda Falls is one of several fabulous walks you can take in the Forestry and Land Scotland maintained Glen Affric.

This is an area of outstanding woodland but to get to it you will have to drive up single track winding roads taking care to use the passing places to let other vehicles by.

There is a car park and information about the different routes you can take depending on how long you want to spend and level of difficulty. All of these are clearly explained.

On this walk on a wet September morning we took the white route, which is the shortest, but which leads to the Plodda Falls themselves.

The falls can be viewed from above, on a wooden viewing platform, or from below – we did both.

At this time of year when it is less busy with visitors and the trees are starting the turn, the autumnal colours are breathtaking.
