To get to the falls either walk up the hill, a lovely long winding road through farmland and forest or drive and park in the car park provided. You need to turn up the road by the Morning, Noon and Night store in Lewiston, keep going straight up the road don’t follow the curve round and you will eventually see the sign for the falls.
There is a walkway down to the falls – make sure you are wearing decent footwear – it would be hazardous in heels! The walk down to the falls from the car park is very short, just a few minutes. I went in the early morning and there was no one there. The mist was lurking in the trees and I was hoping to spot a deer but, by the time I thought of it I had been so noisy I would have frightened off any in the area!
The falls are beautiful – I do love the sound of waterfalls. The fall are managed by the Forestry Commission and drop over 100 feet. As you can imagine, they inspire writers and artists alike.

Divach Falls Walk can be started from Divach Falls Carpark in Divach Wood which is part of Glen Urquhart. Drumnadrochit, Lewiston, Balnain, and Inverness are the nearest towns or villages. Walks and/or mountain bike rides around drumnadrochit, urquhart bay and in glen Urquhart forest. All no more than 3 miles away. This spectacular waterfall of over 30 metres (100 feet) drop has inspired artists such as John Phillips, whose painting of the falls now hangs in Buckingham Palace.
