The Falls of Dochart is best viewed in the winter especially after snow melt. You'll often see salmon floating up the river so definitely keep an eye open for them jumping up the river! You can also view this waterfall from the road bridge that you can walk across without causing issues or dangers to vehicles.
You'll know when you're near the Falls of Dochart when you hear the loud fierce noise of these stunning waterfalls. It's best viewed after a day of heavy rainfall as you can imagine, regardless though it is still a very impressive and picturesque waterfall to visit in Scotland.
Stunning small village with an impressive view welcome due to the Falls of Dochart. Don’t worry this is not a hard sight to miss. When we went it seemed that the river level was quite low so we were able to walk down and climb on the rocks close to the river bed. – Google Review
Regarding parking, the good news is there is a free public car park over the bridge towards Killin village on the right hand side. It's worth noting that during peak season, it can get filled up pretty quickly so we recommend visiting early if visiting at these times of the year.
