Long Description:

The River Lednock flows down from Glen Lednock towards the village of Comrie in Perthshire, Scotland. The village is situated on the Highland Boundary Fault, which has led to numerous minor earth tremors being felt in the area in the past. It is at the point of the fault that the river descends from highlands to lowlands in three distinct steps through a narrow gorge in the glen. Named the Deil's Caldron, Scots for Devil's Kettle, the river cascades down between rock ledges into a dark pool below.

In gaelic it is called Slocha'n Donish and legend has it that it is haunted by a brownie or water elf called Uris-Chidh who entices victims into the pothole.

The falls can be viewed from a wooden platform on the west bank of the river on the Glen Lednock Circular Walk, which begins and ends in Comrie. The falls are around a mile up the glen from the village.
