We had a wonderful autumnal morning at The Hermitage. We were so fortunate that the sun was shining and it had rained a lot in previous days. The relatively short walk to Ossian's Hall is easy going and you pass through some superb forest areas. Ossian's Hall is a folly where visitors can stand in safety to enjoy the cascading... More

The longer walk was closed for safety, but the 500m walk to the bridge was delightful, and picturesque The area is popular with dog owners, plenty of wagging tails when i visited.

We spent a wonderful morning walking in this stunning location. Good shoes enhance the experience although the walk is not too difficult.

If you want a good tranquil walk visit the hermitage for a trail alongside the river braan spectacular waterfall a reward for your walk a folly is built overlooking the falls if you want to see it at its spectacular best visit in winter when water levels are high

Great walk among woodland with river and waterfalls. Designated paths for disabled access. Only downside is the lack of toilets

This was a great way to start our day! We got up in the summer and arrived to this trail roughly 8:00 on the morning. It was peaceful and we were the only ones there. The trail itself is very wide, flat and easy to follow. We were the only ones there which was nice. This Hermitage bridge we saw... More

Was recommended as an after dinner walk when eating at the Fonab in Pitlochry. Was a 10 min drive, but well worth it! A 10 out of 10! The trees, the path and the falls are all stunning! Not a far or demanding walk from the car park, and empty for tourists at 8pm.

Such a beautiful place; would highly recommend! The walk from the car park is about 10 minutes so make sure you have 'sensible' shoes. the views from the bridge are glorious.

I do a fair bit of walking but this was, by far, one of the most beautiful places I have walked through. The waterfall, caves, trees and bridges were incredible, there were lots of different walking options so you can do a couple 5km routes or just chose a 2km to see the 'highlights'. Definitely recommend this!
