road to steale falls

after a wonderful breakfast at the Gantocks, 

we checked out & followed allans’s directions (&google map) to the steale falls trailhead at glen nevis outside fort williams on 10.6.2017.^^

it was wet & overcast. directions were easy to follow & the drive was scenic.

we thought the drive was as nice as that we had at glen etive, only that there was no river alongside.

aside from that, it was a really beautiful country drive though the weather was dismal…

the trailhead took some looking, but we followed allan’s good directions & traveled to the end of the road.

we parked at the steale falls carpark where the trailhead for the trail starts. 🙂

the drizzle got heavier & i had to put on my daiso $2 raincoat as my parka is rain resistant only not rainproof.

and finally we emerged from the wooded path to wide open ground with steale fall in the distance.

we walked to the wire bridge where some younger folks were crossing. both of us did not want to cross over, so we looked over the steale falls from this side of the river.

a nice fall.

we were going to iceland (where far more majestic waterfalls of all variations/descriptions are a dime a dozen) with our children later in the month, but still this is a very pleasant sight & a delightful destination after an equally pleasant walk in the woods….

hiking back from steale falls

we walked back the path & through the woods that had earlier opened up to this spacious terrain.

and back to the carpark & the trailhead.

our next destination is the isles of skye.
