Plodda Falls soak the forest at their base in a fine mist as they plunge over drop of 151 feet (46 metres). They’re one of the most thrilling waterfalls in Scotland, but Plodda is also remarkable for its trees.
In other places in Glen Affric National Nature Reserve, Forestry Commission Scotland are working hard to remove non-native trees. However, here at Plodda, non-native trees are the glory of the forest: magnificent Douglas firs that soar up like the pillars of a cathedral. Crush their needles and you might be reminded of Christmas: they have an amazing scent of tangerines.
