Beautiful view waterfall on initial ascent. River too high to cross safely until near the Loch (had to take boots off and wade), then went cross-country to get back to path beside fence. Straight forward walk up from there with good 360 views from top. Went back to car park via Nether Tarnberry to avoid crossing river again, followed fence line down but was still extremely steep with no trodden path. Very hard work on ankles and knees, not recommended!Eliza10012/08/2019
