Only three miles along the weaving single track roads of Glen Lyon from the village Fortingall, opposite Chesthill House, across the river are the beautiful falls of Allt da Ghob
, where the stream tumbles down into the River Lyon in one foaming mass over rocks nearly 700 feet in height. An sight to behold at anytime but especially after heavy rainfall or fast snow melt. Across the stream, at the bottom of the falls, is a parapet-less Roman Bridge which is a stone-arched structure of medieval origin.
Continuing from here all the Glen the road is shaded by a fine row of Sycamores and forms a grand piece of sylvan scenery for a little over half a mile. Glen Lyon is one of Scotland's most beautiful glens and is often referred to as Scotland's longest, loneliest, loveliest glen... and it is packed with history.
