Becky Falls

Becky Falls was really our waterfalling excuse to talk about the myriad of attractions that we managed to experience in both Devon and Cornwall counties. As you can see from the photo…

Brecon Beacons Four Falls Trail (Sgwd Clun-Gwyn, Sgwd Isaf Clun-Gwyn, Sgwd y Pannwr, Sgwd yr Eira)

The Brecon Beacons Four Falls Trail took me by surprise both with the amount of exertion need to visit all of the major waterfalls as well as with how scenic each of the falls were. I kind of…

Sgwd Henrhyd

Sgwd Henrhyd (pronounced “SGOOD HEN-hrhud”; possibly meaning “Old Ford Cascade”) was said to be the tallest single-drop waterfall in South Wales at 90ft (27m), but we felt that wasn’t the main thing..

Melincourt Falls

Melincourt Falls (Sgwd Rhyd Yr Hesg in Welsh) seemed to be one of the unsung waterfalls in an area of South Wales known as Waterfall Country. I suspect the reason why this falls wasn’t as well…

Mynach Falls (Devil’s Bridge)

Mynach Falls (Rhaeadr Mynach in Welsh [pronounced “HRHYE-uh-dur MUH-nahkh”]) was an impressive series of waterfalls said to tumble over a cumulative drop of 90m. We did an down-and-up loop walk…

Conwy Falls (Rhaeadr y Graig Lwyd)

Dolgoch Falls

Dolgoch Falls was really a series of three waterfalls all running fairly far apart from each other on the Nant Dol-goch. While the signs indicated the trail was said to be a modest one mile…

Pistyll Rhaeadr

Pistyll Rhaeadr was a waterfall that quickly impressed us the moment we started to see parts of it as we approached it from the single-lane road leading to this quiet part of Wales that was quite…

Swallow Falls (Rhaeadr Ewynnol)

Swallow Falls (Rhaeadr Ewynnol in Welsh [I think pronounced “HRAYE-uh-dur ew-UHN-nol]) was definitely one of the more famous waterfalls we encountered while we were touring Wales. Not only did this…

Aber Falls (Rhaeadr Fawr)

Aber Falls (Rhaeadr Fawr in Welsh) for some reason took me by surprise with its size when I finally had a chance to visit it in person. Based on my pre-trip research, I had mistakenly thought I was…

Glencoe Waterfalls

The Glencoe Waterfalls were my catch-all term for the handful of waterfalls that we happened to have noticed while we were driving through the scenic Glencoe Valley. We actually visited the valley…

Falls of Falloch

The Falls of Falloch (Eas Falloch in Scottish Gaelic; meaning the Hidden Falls) was a short excursion waterfall that we made a stop for as we were making the drive from Fort William to Stirling Castle

The Falls of Foyers (Eas na Smuide in Scottish Gaelic meaning the Smoking Falls; pronounced “es-nuh-SMOOD-yuh”) was a very attractive waterfall at the small hamlet of Foyers on the quieter eastern…

Rogie Falls

Rogie Falls was actually a bonus waterfall that Julie and I hadn’t even counted on seeing when we made plans to visit Scotland in August 2014. In fact, we didn’t even know it existed! However…

Mealt Falls

Mealt Falls was certainly one of those waterfalls with that “Wow!” factor as it had a lot going for it, especially in light of the fact that we made our visit on a near perfect weather day…

Bride’s Veil Waterfall

The Brides Veil Waterfall (or Bride’s Veil Waterfall) was a roadside waterfall that was a worthwhile photo stop not only because it was an attractive cascade that can be composed in many different…

Eas a’ Chual Aluinn

The Eas a’ Chual Aluinn was the bastardized Gaelic name of what has been widely reported to be Great Britain’s highest above-surface waterfall at 658ft (about 200m). The actual Gaelic name was said…
