Eas Fors is a waterfall on the island of Mull in Scotland.[1] It is situated on the Allt an Eas Fors (Eas Fors Burn) south of Dervaig.

The name is tautologous: eas is Gaelic for waterfall, and fors or foss is also Norse for waterfall,[2] so "Eas Fors waterfall" means "waterfall waterfall waterfall."
