Cold Shower Assynt   Unapool, Assynt, Scotland

This amazingly beautiful but awkwardly accessible waterfall is well hidden and it's position unmarked.  It is known as the Wailing Widow Falls and must be around 80 to 100 feet tall, a significant drop that plunges into a splash pool surrounded by ferns and red lichen covered rock and moss covered boulders.  My son Ben came along with me and got a real surprise when he saw it and he was only too willing to get in the water and swim around which provided me with a rare sense of scale.
