The waterfall at Ardvreck isn't seasonal it's one of those that doesn't seem to very much in flow whatever the weather. The flow out seems to bear no relation to the flow in, on that one.
Just below it on the grass is the remains of a millstone - though there's no record of a mill on that side of the road, there was one down by the castle.
If you go 100m further along the road (away from Lochinver) towards Calda house, which is the other ruin close to Ardvreck, there's a second burn. Follow it up on the Calda house side for about 200m there are two more falls which aren't visible from the road. Both lovely!
For the dedicated walker, you can follow the burn up for about a mile to one of the most gorgeous double falls you will every see.
The come down from the side of Glas Bheinn.
Happy to point you at some photo's on our facebook site (davar lochinver) with a fair selection of waterfalls all around Assynt.
All the best
