Walk 186 – Plodda Falls, Scottish Highlands – 0.8 miles
Simply jaw-dropping! Experience how a bambling burn – Allt na Bodachan – is peacefully flowing through the forest one minute and then without warning is suddenly hurtled 46m vertically down a rock face. Possibly the most impressive falls I have ever seen!

Route: (Follow the white way markers in an anti-clockwise direction). From the information boards head down the main footpath. Ignore the way markers pointing left to the falls, instead continuing ahead through a gate. At first the way markers will show both white and green lines but look out for a left turn to continue along the white route. Here the path narrows and there is a steep decline to reach a viewpoint at the base of Plodda Falls. Head up a set of steps to reach the fantastic viewing platform suspended above the falls. Continue along the path next to the burn to complete the loop.
