Watercourse Keltie Water

The Bracklinn Falls are a series of waterfalls north-east of Callander, Scotland on the course of the Keltie Water, where the river crosses the Highland Boundary Fault.

Over recent years there have been a number of tragic incidents at the falls.


The name of the falls should mean speckled or white foaming pool.

The bridge

In 2004, a long-standing steel footbridge over the falls was washed away by severe floods. In October 2010, a new, 20-tonne wood-and-copper footbridge, spanning 20m across a very deep gorge, was hauled into place by hand because the location made it impossible to use a crane. In July 2011, this new bridge won an award at the International Footbridge Awards.

Access to the falls

The falls can be reached with an easy walk fom a car-park close to Callander; the itinerary is signposted and takes a couple of hours there and back.

Nature conservation

The waterfall and its surrounding area belongs to the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.
