Two and a half kilometres west of Kenmore on the south shore of Loch Tay is the small hamlet of Acharn. From Acharn a footpath rises steeply through beech-woods past a narrow gorge where the Acharn Burn plummets over the Falls of Acharn.
Above the falls the route rises less steeply and follows Land-Rover tracks over open moorland, providing superb views over Loch Tay to Ben Lawers and Schiehallion.
The route passes an ancient tumulus and a stone circle, before fording the burn and returning down the west side of the falls which can be viewed from the balcony of a hermit's cave.
