Eas a' Chual Aluinn in the parish of Assynt, Sutherland, Highland, Scotland, is the highest waterfall in the United Kingdom with a sheer drop of 200 m (660 ft). When in full flow it is over three times higher than Niagara Falls.
The waterfall can be reached by a 6-mile (10-kilometre) walk across boggy ground from the road 3 mi (5 km) south of Kylesku in Sutherland. In good weather, a boat-trip runs from the slipway by the Kylesku Hotel to Loch Beag, from where the waterfall is visible.
The name is a corruption of Scottish Gaelic: Eas a' Chùil Àlainn, ("waterfall of the beautiful tresses").
