Plodda Falls are a scenic waterfall in the Highlands of Inverness-shire, on a stream known as Allt na Bodachan. It may be found about three miles south-west of the village of Tomich, to the south of Glen Affric.

Here the waters of the burn drop 150 feet just above where its waters enter the Abhainn Deabhag, which in turn, some miles further downstream, enters Glen Affric and joins the River Affric to form the River Glass.[1]

Plodda Falls are a popular tourist attraction. In 1880, a footbridge was built across the top of the falls, by Lord Tweedmouth, who owned the Guisachan estate. In 2005, the Forestry Commission found this bridge to be dangerous, and it was closed, and was replaced by a new viewing platform in 2009.[2][3]
