⚠The core footpath is blocked due to a landslide, the reserve is not accessible from the Fairy Glen car park. Access the reserve using the Fairy Glen footpath from Rosemarkie beach instead.⚠

In a hidden glen not far from Inverness, this small and steep-sided reserve is a magical broadleaf woodland. Follow the winding path as it weaves across the stream, through longstanding woodland and past moss-covered rocks. At the end, you'll discover two beautiful waterfalls that tumble into the pool below.

Stay a while to enjoy the sounds, before making your way back the way you came, keeping an eye out for Buzzards circling overhead or a Grey Heron stalking fish along the glittering stream.

The footpath is around 1.25 miles (2 km) long, from the car park to the waterfalls. At the end of your visit, please return to the car park via the footpath rather than walk down the road.
