Built for the second Duke of Atholl in 1758 and restored in 1953, this folly sits on a rocky outcrop overlooking the turbulent Black Linn Fall, which affords fine views of the distant woodlands.

Stunning waterfall. Easy 4 mi. round-trip hike.

Beautiful 4 mile round-trip hike to a dramatic waterfall and Ossian's Hall overlooking the falls. Located in the Hermitage. Wish we had time to do more hikes in this area.

Part of The Hermitage trail really, this is the centre-point - with a balcony overlooking the waterfalls.

You reach the folly which is 'Ossian's Hall' via the Hermitage Woodland Walk - which is beautiful, whatever the weather. If it is a little damp, the trees give you a fair amount of protection while you walk to the folly. The National Trust own the property and there is fee at the two car parks - the lower park...

The access is good for disabled visitors who can drive right up within a few feet of the automatic entrance door by exiting the car park by the right rear hand corner roadway not otherwise signposted follow the rough road to the right every time. Spectacular falls from the viewing platform

Never fails to impress, this hall was built when it would have been a real feat of civil engineering, gets you right on top of the falls, you can only look down and marvel. Tip, get somone to walk a bit further on to take a photo of you in the hall.

Ossians Hall is part of the Hermitage Walk. It is set in spectacular surroundings amongst towering Douglas Fir trees. The "hall" itself is built precariously over the waterfalls, which can be viewed via the balcony through the hall. A footbridge goes over the river at this point but is closed at the other side due to land slip which took... More

Ossian's Hall at 'The Hermitage' is the best place to view the River Braan's Black Linn Falls. It overlooks the Falls and they are always amazing - more so after rain or snow melt - and the latter contributed to what we found there at the end of February. It's a place close to my heart but, sentimentality aside, Ossian's... More

Ossian's Hall is only one, albeit impressive, part of an easy woodland walk around The Hermitage, near Dunkeld. In February the banks at each side of the are peppered with clumps of snowdrops beneath towering trees. The level path winds parallel to the banks of the River Braan, allowing glimpses of the rocky route the river takes. Ossian's Hall is... More

Generally I like my nature just as it comes but I have to take my hat off to whoever has managed this piece of nature for the pleasure of visitors. One approaches a set of doors, enters a space with Celtic style drawings on the walls and passes through another set of (quite soundproofing) doors to be overtaken by the... More

Ossian's Hall was a lovely surprise while walking through "The Hermitage", Mature woodland with with well marked trails. Ossian's Hall is credible piece of architecture that takes full advantage of view towards the waterfall. I can understand why weddings have taken place here. There is also a stone built next to the hall that unfortunately for safety reasons can no... More
