Located in the tiny hamlet of Inversnaid, in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Scotland. The waterfall by the West Highland Way is perched on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond, just off to the side of the Inversnaid Hotel. This beautiful waterfall drops from the ‘hanging valley’ of Loch Arklet and tumbles into the glaciated trench of Loch Lomond. It is associated with the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins, who was inspired to write his poem, ‘Inversnaid’ when visiting this area in the 1880’s

This darksome burn, horseback brown,
His rollrock highroad roaring down,
In coop and in comb the fleece of his foam
Flutes and low to the lake falls home.

A windpuff-bonnet of fawn-froth
Turns and twindles over the broth
Of a pool so pitch black, fell-frowning,
It rounds and rounds Despair to drowning.

Degged with dew, dappled with dew,
Are the groins of the braes that the brook treads through,
Wiry heathpacks, flitches of fern,
And the beadbonny ash that sits over the burn.

What would the world be, once bereft
Of wet and wildness? Let them be left,
O let them be left, wildness and wet;
Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.
