This walk is mainly for tourists staying at resorts at Kenmore and other accommodation round Loch Tay. This waterfalls walk involves climbing a trail up the hillside known as Queens Drive or the Rob Roy Way, so you need to be reasonably agile and fit. The waterfalls are excellent and the walk is well worth the effort. Best in autumn and spring when there is likely to be a good flow of water down the river in the deep wooded ravine - well; more of a large brook really. All of the trails and tracks are in good order, although the final track on the return route down to the holiday accommodation of Remony House is not often used by walkers and hikers; and for the purpose of this walk is used under Scotland’s right to roam. There are no stiles, only a few old wooden kissing gates, but several steel field gates. The latter may need lifting in order to unlatch them. This is a longer version of walk 8435.

The walk is probably most suitable for older children, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs & buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled will but boots will be best and there should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. You will need a torch or a smartphone light, and for the steep stony track a walking stick will be very useful. On your route there are no refreshments, picnic tables or bench seats, but the climb up Rob Roy Way has a lot of useful large flat boulders near the top. There are no toilets or other facilities.
