Eas Mor Falls
Eas Mor Falls

Eas Mor (sometimes called Paradise Falls) is a dramatic waterfall set in beautiful woodlands near the southern tip of Arran, just north of Kildonan. A trail leads through the woodlands to several viewing platforms, and you can extend the walk to take in Loch Garbad.

The woodland and the trail are maintained by the local charity Eas Mor Ecology, which is gradually turning the woodland back into its semi-natural state after years of commercial forestry.

Simply follow the well-maintained trail north for just over 500 metres until it descends the gorge of Allt Mor to the first viewing platform. The going is generally very easy, making this an excellent family walk, suitable for less mobile visitors.

By far the best viewing platform is the last, which offers dramatic views of the waterfall, a solitary plume that falls almost straight down a steep cliff to a poll below.

Beyond this final viewing platform, there is a path branching off to the left if you want to continue on to Loch Garbad, roughly 2km to the north.

From the path junction, you can opt to turn off the main path for a quick jaunt along the eastern side of the gorge to the Eas Mor Ecology Library, a turf-covered log cabin made with lumber from trees blown down in a 1998 storm. The Library is lined with drawings and touching notes left by visitors.

Getting There

There is a car park on the A841, just opposite the westernmost road to Kildonan. There is an interpretation panel at the car park with a map of the route and an explanation of the local landscape and woodland.

The Eas Mor walk is one of the easiest on Arran, and the views of the waterfall a=nd the Allt Mor gorge are wonderful. Well worth an excursion.
