Falls of Feugh
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The Falls of Feugh are a good place to watch the salmon leap as they travel upriver to spawn. The best times to view the salmon are from September - November and from February - March. The falls are only about half a mile from the centre of Banchory and can easily be reached on foot.
Look for the old turnpike toll house by the bridge; it was built with windows on two sides so that the toll minder could watch for travellers coming in both directions.
There is a free parking area on the minor road off the B974 (across the bridge), and a restaurant and tea room with views of the waterfalls.
The Falls of Feugh is included in our list of 22 Beautiful Scottish Waterfalls.
