Dog Falls

Dog FallsThe Dog Falls consists of a set of 'rapids' through a rocky gorge on a section of the River Affric just east of the Benevean Dam. There is a sizeable carpark with picnic benches and public toilets provided by the Forestry Commission. Information boards and waymarked walks allow the visitor to explore the area around the Falls taking in the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape.

The main walk around the Falls provides a number of opportunities to view the River Affric gorge especially from the small wooden bridge that crosses the river just to the east of the Falls. This part of the walk can be extended to take in the secluded woodland lochan - Coire Loch - an internationally important site for dragonflies, with up to fourteen different species being found there.

At the carpark, a larger bridge crosses the River Affric to join the forestry road that runs westwards the full length of Loch Beinn a' Mheadhoin. Just a short distance along this road, although perhaps a steeper section, is a viewpoint situated above the Benevean Dam that gives superb views of the Loch and the upper reaches of the Glen and the Affric mountains.
