Visitors will be rewarded with fantastic views of the Isle of Skye as well as an amazing drop waterfall which throws itself from a cliff! It's perfect to see for a quick 10-minute pit stop as it's close to the side of the road and if you're ever passing that road we definitely recommend checking out!

Spent the night here and woke to a few people lapping up the views. The over-cliff fall was absolutely breath taking. So glad we got to see the Mealt Falls while on the Isle of Skye! – Google Review

However, although the Mealt Falls is pretty spectacular, it's worth noting that some visitors have described it as 'pretty underwhelming'. If you're passing by it is definitely worth a quick pit stop, however they don't recommend going out your way to visit!


Things to know before visiting Mealt Falls


  • Mealt Falls is located on the Isle of Skye just outside Portree.

  • We would say it is child friendly, but since you're near the edge of the cliff please take extra care!

  • There is free parking on the side of the road for those that want to visit Mealt Falls.
