Falls of Foyers ,Loch Ness, Scotland, United Kingdom


Location -: Falls of Foyers ,River Foyers ,Loch Ness, in Highland, Scotland, United Kingdom
The Fall of Foyers (meaning the smoking falls) is a waterfall on the River Foyers, which feeds Loch Ness, in Highland, Scotland, United Kingdom.
The waterfall has "a fine cascade", having a fall of 165 feet. It is located on the lower portion of the River Foyers at grid referenceNH497203. The river enters Loch Ness on the East side, North-East of Fort Augustus.
The well-known A82 runs north to south and is the carriage way used by most tourists and visitors. However, across the loch runs the picturesque B852 road that hides many treasures for the visitor to explorer and discover, and one of these lies a little south of the village of Foyers; the Falls of Foyer. The Scottish Gaelic name for the Falls is: Eas na Smùide – which translated means the ‘smoking falls’ and it does live up to its name.
The stop has a small carpark with a local post office, a charming café, and a well-stocked residents’ shop – which also caters for visitors who have forgotten their packed lunch – all offering great local produce and a welcoming smile.
The route takes walker down a steep path, which is surprisingly well fenced, to the upper viewing gallery that quickly provides a spectacular grandstand view of the falls. The path then continues along the gorge to other viewing sites perfectly placed to take advantage of the beauty of this natural wonder.
It is a photographer’s paradise, with spectacular views of Loch Ness that are not regularly seen in the standard literature of the region. It is also popular with birdwatchers – ‘twitchers’ – who find the wide variety of birdlife a magnet for their cameras.
