Lower Falls,Glen Nevis, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on Lower Falls which are located about a 15 minute drive south of Fort William in the Scottish Highlands. The Falls (also known as Polldubh or Black Pool in Gaelic) and can be found close to the end of the road which traverses Glen Nevis. This starts at Fort William and passes the base of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain. A drive along this road offers superb scenery, sometimes with populations of sheep and Highland Cattle. More information:

  • The Falls form part of the River Nevis which rises in the Mamore range of mountains and then flows north-west to flow into Loch Linnhe near Fort William.
  • At the Falls the drop is 10 metres.
  • Just prior to the Falls there is a car park from where visitors undertake a short walk of a few minutes to view the site.
  • Glen Nevis has been used as a location for major films such as Braveheart, Rob Roy, Highlander and Harry Potter.
