Although the walk to the Inverarnan waterfall is relatively short in distance, the ascent there is really steep and a good sense of balance is essential.                       

Off the A82 at Inverarnan, about 200 mtrs north of the famous Drover’s Inn and 1 mile north of Loch Lomond a bridge to your right will lead you to a small campsite, which one would do well to remember, as this provides an excellent ground base for the Falloch and Arrochar hills. The bridge which oversees the River Falloch sets you on your way to the campsite. Incidentally, it has a shop and a few wigwams and seems to be set on farmland.

Behind the site an easily defined path leads up to the waterfall and it is part of Meall Mor Nan Eag 624 mtrs. The falls are very distinct from the A82 but their real beauty are to be seen close up, so the effort in getting there is well worth the sweat. Care should be taken at all times as the route will test the best of thighs and the path is also quite narrow.

At the start, you will crossover another path which is actually the West Highland Way and the surrounding scenery unfolds to give the walker fine views northwards to the Falloch Hills, westwards to Troisgeach 733 mtrs. and Beinn Damhain 684 mtrs. and then, southwards down the River Falloch valley.

On approaching the main area of the falls, which should take no more than 1 hr., you will find the land somewhat boggy and the falls fenced off for your own safety. They are quite intimidating at this point as you are only a few metres away and the noise of the water adds to the ambiance, so enjoy and take care.
