Waterfall Walks

The UK has hundreds of super waterfall walks. These will usually involve a lovely riverside walk through woodland glades to the falls.
One of the highlights in England is the magnificent Aysgarth Falls Walk in the Yorkshire Dales. The upper and middle falls were featured in the film 'Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves'.
In the Lake District the climb alongside the beautiful Dungeon Ghyll and the splendid Stock Ghyll Force are real highlights.
In the Brecon Beacons in Wales you will find the stunning area known as waterfall country. The Four Waterfalls Walk is magnificent.
In Scotland you can visit the highest waterfall in Britain on the Eas a' Chual Aluinn Walk.
