Reasons for trip

This is a beauty spot situated on the outskirts of Killin. As the name indicates, it is a set of falls, the water falls are not down sheer faces, more like a tumble between rocks as they weave into town. Access is via steps running from the road down onto the rocks. There are signs, access at your own risk and these are not for the less mobile however, if you go down to the falls there are some spectacular views and some great examples of erosion where the river has ground boreholes into the rock. There is free parking in the village and nearby and no shortage of places to get refreshments nearby. Beware of the narrow bridge as you walk in or out of town, vehicles use this and it can be quite tight. The burial place of the MacNab clan is on an island in the middle of the river accessed via the bridge.
