Getting To Bracklinn Falls
Bracklinn Falls is signposted off of the A84 at Callander, in the Trossachs. Follow the winding up hill road until you get to the car park, it does get narrower as you head up. Just on the car park, it will fills quickly on a busy day so plan your visit accordingly, or consider walking from the town, or via some of the walking routes.
The car park is free and are about three quarters of a mile from the falls.
Walking To The Falls
As mentioned this is a short walk to the falls. Along the easy path you can enjoy excellent views down to Callander and well beyond.
When To Visit?
During winter the falls are often more dramatic as they contain more water. The autumn colours are beautiful, spring and summer are good too. I’ve been trying to vary the seasons for my visits. These photographs are mainly autumn and summer.
Queen Victoria visited the falls in the 1870’s and for the occasion an iron bridge over the falls was built. This bridge was swept away in Summer 2004 as a result of flash floods. This is the replacement bridge.
You can scramble around and get some good views of Bracklinn Falls and gorge below. Do take care when heading off of the main path as there are some steep drops. This is a beautiful spot, well worth a visit to Callander to enjoy.
