The falls are truly a force of nature

Falls of Shin

The Falls of Shin is a popular visitor attraction in the North of Scotland. Situated near the village of Lairg, the falls are known for being one of the best places in the Highlands to view salmon leaping up the waterfall from the river below. The falls are truly a force of nature, their thundering can be heard as you approach the short path that leads to the viewing platform above the rocky banks of the river.

Nearby are various amenities including a restaurant, gift shop, mini-golf, children’s play area and free parking. The surrounding woodland has many trails and walking routes, which offer a perfect opportunity to spot some local wildlife.
