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....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.

Has anyone met an elderly gent name Bill Hill? We met him last April at the car park for The Hermitage. He said he lives in nearby Dunkeld and walks 6 miles there every day. I would like to contact him to meet with a group I'm bringing to Scotland April 2016.
