Beautiful walk on a bright cold November afternoon. Although a little slippy underfoot due to the ice and fallen leaves what a fabulous walk, there were a couple of small uphill bits but there were plenty of stopping point if needed. The views around every turn were stunning, I can't wait to go back in the spring

A nice walk along the river with some historic sights as well. Quite an easy walk along a path with some inclines.

We walked this in November when everything was damp. However despite this it was a very pleasant non demanding mile and a half walk. Goes over lots of bridges and culminates in a fine view of the waterfall.

The walk to hareshaw linn isnt really challenging, but can be muddy in places. Its worth putting up with the mud and sometimes slippery path, as the waterfall is at is best after a bit of rain.

An interesting walk along a deep wooded valley with a lot of history. The area is also designated an area of special scientific interest due to the various mosses and lichens. Well signed from the car park and not too strenuous although there are some slippy areas. You come back the same route as going out. Would recommend decent walking... More

A bit steep in some bits and muddy in others so trainers or walking boots best. Really worth walking to the end as the waterfall and rock formations are spectacular.

This is a stunning walk through a wooded valley to the waterfall. It felt longer than a mile and half to get there due to the steps and inclines but it is well worth it. Allow 2 hours for the round trip. There had been continued rain the night before and it was slippery underfoot even with walking boots, so... More

This is a lovely walk, not suitable if you struggle with steps though. That said the waterfall is certainly worth the climb. Nature at its best and the history info is great

This is a nice walk through the forest and at the end of the walk a lovely waterfall. If you are lucky you will see red squirrels, and woodpeckers. There is picnic tables and seating as you walk so you can always have a seat and watch the forest animals and trees/flowers.

This is a great walk through the woods and along the river before you arrive at the main waterfall. There are smaller waterfalls along with way with a few bridges to cross as well. There was plenty people there, which shows it is a popular walk and although it is not too taxing, there are some steep parts to it... More
