Really nice walk with some awesome views of the waterfall. Very surprised with the building which over looks the water fall (Osian's Hall). The walk itself only takes about 45 minutes so don't expect anything challenging. Unfortunately, there had been a landslide on the other side of the bridge which allowed access to the Young Giants trees, so was completely... More

Worth stopping and trekking around. Climbing the rocks to get closer is not particularly highly recommended, but it is rewarding ;)

I recently revisited the hermitage after about 30 years. It's still stunning. Gorgeous waterfalls, Ossians Hall, the Hermit's house and if your willing to put in a decent hike, the Rambling Bridge. Very quiet and serene and well worth the hike.

A favourite local spot of ours, visit early or late or weekdays to avoid crowds. Great summer woods, autumn colours, and winter icicles! Walk upstream to Rumbling bridge or even better, do the round trip to Birnam via opposite hill. Only thing is , the Forestry Commission has STILLL not cleared the path to Inver on other side of bridge-... More

We stopped here on the way to Pitlochry, tempted by the chance to see some lovely autumnal foliage. We certainly werent dissapointed. Once we had paid for the parking we followed the well maintained path along the river to the stunning waterfall, bridge and hall making for some spectacular photographs. Further in you reach the Hermitage itself, a nice little... More

We have enjoyed some lovely walks here, with lots of things to keep your interest. In August 2013 - the weather even surprised us with lovely early evening sunshine!

The Hermitage off the A9, its well signed, between Perth and Dunkeld. its a woodland walk alongside the river! plenty of types/variety of walk. waterfalls open pools etc to view, and why its called the Hermitage, is because of the stone dwelling that the hermit lived in! 2 levels of car parks...

We visited as a stop off on the drive home from the Highlands to Gateshead, and were beautifully surprised by this charming woodland. Situated right off the A9, it couldn't be more convenient to visit. Parking is £2 but free to NT and NTS members. We followed one of the short walks, although there are longer ones if you have...
