Uisge Ban Falls & Herring Choker Deli
Gaelic for “white water”, Uisge Ban (ish-ka-ban) Falls is by far the most popular hike in the Baddeck area. This 4 km, 1.5-hour hike complete with picnic facilities attracts locals and visitors all season long.
Those visiting via the many cruise ships that dock in Sydney, also make their way to the Baddeck area for the hike. It’s an easy hike so great for most ages and the payoff at the end is the “white water” falls hammering the granite gorge underneath. An absolutely great invigorating hike for the novice, families with young children or those wanting a strong connection with nature.
Pro-Tip – Pack a lunch and your red-checkered table cloth for the perfect picnic.
