The walk to Ossian's hall is gently uphill through a lovely forest along side the river with rapids and small falls is about 3/4 of a mile until you reach Ossian's Hall where there is a narrow gorge, a larger waterfall and a beautiful old stone bridge. It is very peaceful and relaxing. The Hall itself is very interesting but... More

Nice enough viewpoint. Overlooking a small falls on the river Braan, part of the Hermitage woodlands area. The Braan walk takes in all the best parts of this rather pleasant woodland.

Lovely walk of a few hundred yards alongside the River Braan brings you to this "folly", which is set into the hillside overlooking the raging falls below. Popular spot for wedding pictures. Very scenic. By continuing on the "Braan Path" you can complete a lovely circular walk of about 4 miles, encompassing all that is good in rural Scotland. Well... More

Ossian's Hall is like nothing I've ever seen. It was such a surprise to come upon it while having a stroll through one of the most beautiful woods I've ever seen. The water falls viewed from above was stunning. Scotland is full of amazing natural beauty and this was a prime example. The Scottish pines loomed over the trail and... More

Brilliant, well worth the gradual uphill walk of perhaps 20 minutes unless you stop to take photos en route - which you will!. The hall overlooks a roaring, spraying amazing waterfall. Small but beautiful stone monument to past times with an fantastic vista.

Hard to tell you about the clever effect of the sliding door without spoiling it if you haven't been but it has been created thoughtfully.

One of the most beautiful tourist attractions in Scotland. It's worth the walk from Dunkeld to see the water thundering down the waterfall from Ossian's Hall. It's a must see if you are visiting tha area. It would make a fabulous tv or movie location. Natural beauty at its best!

Bit uneven underfoot but the viewing platform through the Hall is amazing. Go through the glass doors onto the platform, where you can see the waterfall. You get a bit of spray of water, but it is amazing.

For me, visiting the folly that is 'Ossian's Hall' is keeping childhood memories alive ..... visiting many times during holidays back to my father's Blairgowrie birthplace. So, last October & November and this month, we visited it yet again. It is the ideal viewing spot to look over the River Braan's Black Linn Falls, as it tumbles/roars below. It and... More
