We did the hike clockwise. Quite steep off the bat all the way to the peak. It got increasingly more windy as we approached the top to where we could barely stand in some parts. In general the hike had everything - challenging parts, easier portions, parts in tree cover, parts exposed, and wonderful views all around. I would love to do this hike again soon. Highly recommend.

This is a charming hike! The trail itself is easy and well-traveled, but there are multiple creek crossings. The first one requires navigating the stream rocks yourself- expect to get your feet dipped in a little water. The second has large, flat stepping stones, so no contact with water required. The further up the trail you go, the muddier it gets, and some spots will submerge your feet 1-2 inches in mud/marsh. There is no shade cover so sunscreen is a must. This is a shared trail with a long loop that goes up to Sgurr nan Fheadain, so don't be fooled when the pools end and the trail keeps going. The ending of the fairy pools part of the trail is poorly marked. There used to be a sign, but as of March 13, 2020 the sign itself was gone and only the post remains. myself and many hikers walked another 1.5 miles along the trail, looking for the trail end sign. This is nice for those who want more of a walk though. parking is £5, cash only.

Great short hike! Completed this at dusk, beautiful after walk work. Incline is steep, I certainly took a few breaks on the way up. Would totally do this again!

Not too difficult a climb but it was fairly muddy so bring your hiking boots! Well worth it all for the views at the top - we climbed March time and the snow topped view was breathtaking! Very windy so wrap up warm and dress for every season in one day!

We was expecting to climb Ben Nevis on our travels up to Glencoe but the weather called us off, we stumbled across this trail by chance when driving to Glen Nevis. Very picturesque, stunning views, light work taking only a couple of hours. To get to the bottom of the falls you have to cross a zip wire as there’s a river that must be crossed.

Completed this hike today and it was unlike anything I’ve ever seen despite the dense fog. I will echo other hikers and say you should complete this going counter clockwise. We completed the whole loop today and the last/back half is pretty unenjoyable. The trail is totally washed out and virtually unidentifiable. We had to spend most our time looking at the AllTrails app to make sure we were going the right way instead of enjoying the scenery. It was also a LOT more muddy and slippery with a lot of loose rocks and scree So while the hike is stunning and breathtaking, I think it’s only necessary to complete the first half and then turn around. PS you do have to pay to park at the trailhead and they have a kiosk that takes cards. Also treat yourself to a hot chocolate from the snack cart that parks at the trailhead (The Tea Pot) - it’s delicious!

In winter right after a snow fall. A bit icy and windy atop but amazing experience. Moderate climb, even easy at first. Incredible view

Bit challenging, but so worth it. Went in August and it was beautiful. The drive in was a bit interesting if not used to Scottish backcountry roads. Never experienced anything like it in the US.

Very nice easy walk, however no where near moderate.
