I've known these Falls on the River Braan since a child - from holidays with my Perthshire-born father. They NEVER fail to impress. On the 16th April, they were magnificent!! You can make a short visit to them & return to ‘The Hermitage’ car park or you can walk on much further - for as long as you like - on the many walks around them.

Every time I visit I return refreshed and calm. The views are amazing and it is my top place to visit in the area.

Walked up to here following the Inver path from Birnam. The little hall looks nothing from the outside (a round stone hut) but going and and through the glass doors onto the balcony overlooking the Braan falls was a very pleasant surprise! Well worth the visit.

Ossian's Hall is part of the landscaped woodland known as The Hermitage. from The hermitage car park, there's a 1/4 mile walk to to the hall through semi-wild woodland. When you leave the car park, take the smaller, lower bridge under the railway to follow the river to the hall (the other bridge also takes you tot he hall but is a bit further from the river. At the hut there is a waterfall and a folly bridge crossing the waterfall chasm. The hut itself has a balcony overlooking the waterfall and below the hut there is another viewing area which you can reach by following a path under the bridge. Also, you can cross the bridge and head upstream for a view back to the hut. The look and feel of the place changes over the seasons - we visited in January following some heavy rain when the river was in spate so the noise of the waterfall was almost overpowering, in autumn, the different trees turn different colours and the view from the balcony can be breathtaking.
Bear in mind that although the reviews here refer to Ossian's Hut, there are a number of walks int eh area worth following as well.

The children were very impressed with the cave! It is a short walk from the waterfalls and well worth a visit - especially for over imaginative children.
