Why do I like this place so much?
The ramble to the waterfall is the perfect way to walk off an indulgent lunch or on a sunny day to pack a picnic and sit by the riverside enjoying the mountain scenery. It doesn’t matter the season or the weather I always spot something different along Glen Nevis. I love it because even though there might be many other visitors around you can always find a quiet spot.
I’m a big fan of the Harry Potter movies and you will spot the Steall Falls in the background of many of the films including in some of the quidditch playing scenes at Hogwarts. Unfortunately, I have no magic to help me cross the seemingly precarious wire bridge that walkers use to cross over the river to explore the mountains beyond. So, I just enjoy watching those braver than me wobbling across.
My favourite restaurants:
Lime Tree Restaurant, Fort William. Locally sourced and seasonal ingredients
Eeusk, Oban. Local fish and seafood with harbour views
The Waterfront, Inverness. Home cooking in a cosy informal setting. Often have live traditional music.
