Good walking boots
with the sort of grips that easily deal with wet ground may be ideal for a waterfall walk, including one route that has only recently opened after a six-year hiatus.
The Scotsman Newspaper has featured a circular route around Bracklinn Falls near Callander as its latest Walk of the Week, noting this has only recently become possible again.
A flash flood on Keltie Burn in 2004 swept away the old bridge and it took until last year for a replacement to be manoeuvred into place across the 60 ft wide, 100 ft deep gorge.
The paper said the views from the new crossing are "quite something".
Wet weather may be the best time to see a waterfall because of the extra volume of water on view, but this in turn may require good waterproofs and the best boots.
Callander is in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, where other watery adventures could include a walk along the West Highland Way next to Loch Lomond, the largest lake in Great Britain.
