The Bracklinn Falls
River: Keltie Water
Co-ordinates: 56°14’59"N, 4°11’18"W

The Bracklinn Falls are a series of waterfalls northeast of Callander, Perthshire, on the course of the Keltie Water, where the river crosses the Highland Boundary Fault.

In 2004, a long-standing steel footbridge over the falls was washed away by severe floods. In October 2010, a new, 20-ton wood-and-copper footbridge, spanning 20m across a very deep gorge, was hauled into place by hand because the location made it impossible to use a crane.[1] In July 2011, this new bridge won an award at the International Footbridge Awards.[2]

The falls were seen in the 1975 British comedy film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
