  • Very small but powerful waterfall only a small walk from the car park. Has a visitor centre, toilet and tea rooms, so well serviced for a small tourist spot. Car park has nice views of the lake.
  • Rain helped us to decide not to go further than the café. Can't rate the waterfall because we didn't see it. Very nice drive up and pleasant atmosphere.
