Both Pete and myself had been here previously, and on my last visit the camera didn't even come out of the bag due to the hordes of sightseers ticking this location off their list. For such a remote location it was exceptionally busy, however this time, it was different. In order to get to the waterfalls that make up the falls one has to cross either stepping stones, or strategically placed rocks in a stream. Having a good pair of walking boots on didn't present any problems as I just stomped on through, however a number of tourists had summer footwear on which was completely unsuitable for the icy conditions, and they couldn't ford the streams. The place was deserted!
The river is the Allt Coir' a' Mhadaidh and the mountains in the background are from R to L - Sgurr a' Mhadaidh (Eng=Peak of the Fox), Sgurr an Fheadain, Sgurr na' Bairnich and Bruach na Frithe (Eng=Slope of the Deer Forest).
I must admit that I found this location quite difficult to get a good composition. The sky was constantly changing from flat to blue with clouds, and the rain was intermittent. It would have been nice to be able to linger for a while, but we had to get back south and make do with what we had captured.
