The weather was dull and after taking the coast road and passing Monty Halls cottage (do you remember him, the marine biologist and his dog Rubén, who used to live and explore for weeks around the Western Isles?) ...
... narrower and steeper as we make our way towards the waterfall. We are pretty high now and can see the river way down in the valley below. Finally we reach a high point and can hear the gushing water - we must be close! And suddenly there it is, a beautiful mass of gushing white...wow!
