Eas a Chual Aluinn Waterfall ***
Region: Caithness, Sutherland & Ross
Eas a Chual Aluinn, also known as Eas Coul Aulin, is a spectacular waterfall, the highest falls in Britain at 638 feet. The falls spill from a high plateau overlooking Loch Glencoul and fall 200 metres in two steps to the shore of Loch Glencoul far below. The name is an English mangling of the original Gaelic which translates as 'waterfall of the beautiful tresses'. The walk to Eas a Chual Aluinn is utterly superb. A reasonably fit person should plan on five hours there and back. It is very easy to get completely lost though, so do take care...and a map!
