The wall is part of the Hermitage trail walk. It is a nice fall but not worth a long drive. I'm sure it is very pretty when the water is rushing and they've had a heavy rain.

The powerful waterfall and the fact that it rains a lot enhance the greenness of this beautiful place....it's worth visiting but avoid the rush hour.

Staying in the area have visited here a couple of times great place for a leg stretch with or without the dogs (muddy after rain). Nice views along the walk as well as from Ossians Hall. Forms part of the Dunkeld and Birnam path network

Great to see the hall being restored. It is asurpriding gem in the woods. It has the thrill of standing over the waterfall which teenagers seem to like anif you are lucky you might see leaping salmon.

We stopped off here randomly and didn't know what to expect. We'd been on the road for hours and just wanted to stretch our legs. After a short walk, 20mins, we reached the hermitage, pushed the door and the sight we were greeted with took my breath away. Stunning! So glad we stopped when we did. Also free parking for... More

Always worth popping into this wee folly to admire the magnificent Black Linn Falls from the viewing platform when you're taking a walk through the Hermitage (or if you need to take refuge when it starts raining!). The falls are best after it's been raining for a day or two. The place can get a bit crowded though with the... More
