Plodda Falls

Inverness & the Great Glen

A forestry car park 3 miles south of Tomich is the starting point for a short (800m) walk to pretty Plodda Falls. A restored Victorian viewing platform extends over the top of the falls like a diving board, giving a dizzying view straight down the cascade into a remote and thickly forested river gorge. Keep your eyes peeled for red squirrels and crossbills.
