The falls vary massively with volume - low and high levels being unpleasant. I lived overlooking the falls for 6 years, and in that time saw two unpleasant down times in the main fall. Please exercise caution here, and the larger drop below again.
EUCC doing it at a great level.

These images give you a good idea of the variation in levels.

The river above is a lovely 2+ trip! perfect for anyone preparing for 4* open canoe with open water, simple sections, rock gardens and a couple of bigger drops.

Lix toll rapid, 1 mile upstream of Killin can become a beast, with a meaty stopper to start, but a couple of oeachy waves at mid levels.
