Falls of Bruar | Hidden Waterfall in Scotland

Updated: Jan 3

The photos online really don't do The Falls of Bruar justice. Visitors are often taken aback by how spectacular the waterfall is, and it's no surprise why! You'll get the fairy-tale feeling when you see the small bridges and the masonry; it's definitely worth the short hike to see this waterfall.

The hike around the Falls of Bruar is definitely worth the visit if you're around the area. It isn't a very challenging hike, however in some places there are vertical drops, so it's worth just sticking to the paths and enjoying the stone bridges with many waterfalls flowing through!

Lovely little loop just off the house of bruar, took us under an hour to complete but it is very well kept and secluded from the main build. Bridges and view points are gorgeous in the scenery - just wish surroundings had been better taken care of. – Google Review

Visitors can enjoy a gentle hike to the viewpoint by the lower falls and then a further hike to the upper falls. We definitely recommend hiking to the top of the falls as you can find a few benches to sit on and admire the breath-taking views!
