It's one of those places with atmosphere. It's maintained well ie not "manicured". Left completely natural. And the sound of falling water from the river is always there.

Lovely place to take the dogs for a walk. Even if the car park is busy, you always feel as though there is no one else in the woodlands.

By the main road this offers a pleasant leg stretch by the Braan river with the walk leading to Ossian folly and the Black falls, huge Douglas fir trees and glimpses of fish and wildlife, easy parking, good stop for a break.

We visited the Hermitage whilst on holiday staying with friends in Perthshire. It's a beautiful riverside walk along the River Tay, with a stunning waterfall which is worth the trip to see on it's own! You can then detour upto Pine Cone Point, with stunning...More

The Ossian's Loop walk is an easy stroll, it is listed as an hour, but for anybody of reasonable fitness, and no camera, it could be much quicker. We however, had children with us and a number of cameras. This made it a very enjoyable,...More
