The falls do indeed deserve the title of the most magnificent in Britain. So tall that I couldn't get them in the whole frame of the camera. I tried taking several pictures and stitching them together, which technically worked, but it really just doesn't even begin to show the falls in their full glory so I'm not going to post that picture.
Definitely a worthwhile amble for anyone looking to waste an afternoon without too much difficulty. I gather the south approach from Strath Croe is easier going, so anyone wishing to avoid the scrambling on the North route should probably choose that one instead.

How hard was the last scramble? because from the top it looked a bit hairy.
Did this a few years back, only i travelled from the south west (Morvich-Woodland-Bealach na Sroine) i will try and find my pics and post a report of it, only my pics are not as well taken as yours .
Very interesting to see the falls from your angle

As you approach the falls it does build expectation as you can start to see more and more as you climb.
