There are a number of small cascades and waterfalls along Allt Daraich, which is one of many streams flowing into the River Sligachan. Although you’d be brave to swim for most of the year, there are also some nice swimming holes along the stream.
The Allt Daraich meets the River Sligachan just after the famous Slighachan Old Bridge (built between 1810 and 1818 by Thomas Telford). The river then flows into the large Lach Sligachan.
Getting to Allt Daraich waterfalls and swimming holes
Park at either the Sligachan Old Bridge Car Park or at the pub/hotel on the opposite side of the river. Follow the Sgùrr na Strì walking trail (which starts on the east side of river) for a short distance, before bearing left onto a seperate trail that follows the Allt Daraich.
