The Hermitage

Parks & Gardens

The Ell House, The Cross, Dunkeld, Perthshire, PH8 0AN

    The Hermitage is a conifer and deciduous wooded gorge with natural features including the River Braan and Ossian’s Hall.

    Marvel at the massive stand of Douglas Fir trees, including one of the tallest trees in the country, and watch for wildlife including leaping salmon by the River Braan and spectacular Black Linn waterfall.

    Follow in the footsteps of Wordsworth, Mendelssohn and Turner as you take a walk through these woods.

    Look out for Ossian’s Hall, a folly overlooking the Black Linn Falls. It was refurbished a few years ago with sliding panels, secret handles and mirrored artwork to recreate the illusions of shock, surprise and amazement, the aims of its original design.
