The Divach Falls are a beauteous waterfall of Inverness-shire, found to the west of Drumnadrochit, close to the north shore of Loch Ness. The name is pronounded 'Jeevach'.

The Divach Burn rises on the slopes of Mealfourvounie, the highest mountain on the loch shore, and runs down to the east towards Urquhart Bay, a bay on the north shore of Loch Ness. Just west of Drumnadrochit its waters plunge 100 feet in a single fall as it enters the Great Glen.

Just below the fall the burn joins the River Coiltie, which continues its course through Lewiston village, then into Urquhart Bay.
