This walk is mainly for tourists staying at resorts at Kenmore and other accommodation round Loch Tay. Although not long this excellent 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 and there are no stiles, and only a few old wooden kissing gates; this is a shorter version of walk 8436.

The walk is probably most suitable for older children, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled, but boots will be best and there should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. You will need a torch or a smartphone light. 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.
