These delightful falls are located on the south western shore ofLittle Loch Broom in the Scottish Highlands near Dundonnell.
The site is a real hidden gem with a walking trail taking you up to a series of picturesque waterfalls.
You can start the walk from the parking area off the A832, just north of the falls. Then climb the footpath heading south along the Ardessie Burn gorge to the falls. It's a lovely spot with the rushing falls and fine views back to Loch Broom.
The path can get quite wet and muddy so a good pair of walking shoes is advised, particularly after wet weather.
