About Bride’s Veil Waterfall
The Brides Veil Waterfall (or Bride’s Veil Waterfall) was a roadside waterfall that was a worthwhile photo stop.
Not only was it an attractive cascade that can be composed in many different ways, but it was also near the eccentric Old Man Storr.
The Old Man Storr was a rock formation protruding apart from the larger group of rocky hills called The Storr.
While the Bride’s Veil Falls was easily viewable from the pullout (or layby as they say in the UK), it was worth the short climb to get up to the top of the falls.
That allowed us to take in the views of the mountains further inland as well as views back out towards Loch Leathan.
Perhaps my only regret was not having the presence of mind to scramble to the other side of the falls and compose a photograph showing both the Bride’s Veil with the Old Man Storr in one frame.
As for the short scramble up, it was pretty straightforward.
The only catch was that there was a lot of muddy spots where it could get a bit slippery and messy without the right footwear or without choosing wisely where to plant your foot.
It was only by doing this scramble was it possible to pay closer attention to the motion of the water snaking its way down towards the sound.
Finally, we somehow missed this waterfall when we were driving north from Portree to Kilt Rock.
However, when we were headed back to Portree from Kilt Rock, the waterfall was hard to miss.
Overall, it took us about 45 minutes to take in the whole experience, including all the picture taking and the scrambling.
But we very easily could’ve taken far less time or spend quite a bit more time here depending on what we wanted to accomplish with the Bride’s Veil Waterfall.
The Brides Veil Waterfall resides in the Isle of Skye near Portree in the Inverness-shire, Scotland. It may be administered by the Highland Council. For information or inquiries about the area as well as current conditions, you can try to visit the Highland Council website or the Isle of Skye Tourism website.
The Brides Veil Waterfall was in between Portree and Kilt Rock.
It was actually a very short distance south of the laybys for the hike to get up to Old Man Storr.
According to my GPS logs, the layby for the Bride’s Veil was roughly 10 miles north of Portree or 5 miles south of Kilt Rock.
For directions on getting to Portree from Inverness, see the Mealt Falls page.
It took us roughly 3 hours to make the drive from Inverness to Portree.
Finally, for some additional context, our base of Inverness was 65 miles (about 90-120 minutes drive) northeast of Fort William, 155 miles (3.5 hours drive) north of Edinburgh and 169 miles (3.5 hours drive) north of Glasgow.
