WALKING IN PERTHSHIRE

The Hermitage by Dunkeld
Distance around 2 miles
Ascent negligable

Click Here for map.

This pleasant riverside stroll is great for clearing your head whilst on a long drive up or down the A9.

Situated just beside Dunkeld, the Hermitage is a National Trust for Scotland property on land which stretches up the River Braan from just off the A9.

What was believed until recently to be the tallest tree in the UK stands in these woods. Then someone got round to measuring it and it lost its title to a tree in Moniack near Inverness.

The car park for the Hermitage is well signposted from the A9 near Dunkeld. From the car park, walk under the railway bridge on either of the two paths and follow the riverside to a delightful stone bridge and victorian folly known as Ossian's Hall overlooking the waterfall.

At this point, a lot of people turn back to their cars, but it is well worth continuing up the riverside and enjoying the forest. A few minutes further up the path you'll come across a strange little cave-like shelter. Have a look inside and debate what it was used for with your companions. Don't ask me though, I've no idea.

Head back to the car park the way you came.
