The trees this time of year are just magnificent. It's an easy stroll along the river and up to the waterfall, with stunning views. There's disabled access and parking available. We had a wonderful day exploring this beautiful place.

Wow, a beautiful place. The colors were amazing, from the trees that were changing color, to the waterfalls and moss covered rocks. I highly recommend taking a day trip here and just wandering around the landscape. It’s a soothing peaceful place, with a great history.

What a stunning woodland! So beautiful of autumnal colours everywhere! The big trees made me felt like being in the Enchanted Wood!!! The view from the bridge was marvelous! It was so beautiful that photos can't do justice! A pleasure walk that suits everyone!

We visited the hermitage today with friends - it really is a lovely walk and the kids were amazed by the waterfalls. However, our trip was all but ruined by the ridiculous and quite frankly barbaric policy of not allowing people to use the toilet...More

It was pouring down, but the towering trees provides us with some shelter. The river and waterfall was mesmerizing. I could have spent hours wandering this place, or going for a longer hike. I would love to come back.

Visited on a sunny day at the start of October. The walk is easy and very well maintained- but be warned there are some quite steep drops - beware if you've youngsters or elderly folks with you. Plenty parking and a nice cafe available too....

Have been visiting since well before time of Dunkeld bypass when access was via village of Inver. Very busy these days with passing tourists on main road and well maintained. Always worth stopping at when passing

The kiosk is at the car park at the start. We only walked for 20 minutes but I think you can do a longer walk. Hope it helps!

The visit can be as long or as short as you want, we were there for over two hours, mainly because we have an interest in the various plants and spent a longtime watching the wildlife
