Glen Nevis and Polldubh Falls

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This route follows the river through the beautiful middle stretches of Glen Nevis from the visitor centre to the Lower Falls at Polldubh. The return is through forestry with more views down the glen. The route between the footbridge at the YHA and the falls is informal and usually quiet compared to other walks in the glen.


Footpath is fairly easy to follow, but is rough, eroded and boggy in a few places, taking longer than the distance would suggest. Some streams can be difficult to cross in spate conditions after rain/snowmelt (but be almost dry at other times).

Public Transport

Bus service between May and September.
