The Hermitage & Black Linn Falls

Perth & Kinross | Dunkeld | Waterfall | ★★★★

[Black Linn Falls, The Hermitage]

A mile above its confluence with the larger Tay, the River Braan tumbles in three foaming streaks over the Black Linn Falls: the climax of a noisy stretch of burn starting further upstream at Rumbling Bridge. The beauty of this spot is enhanced by a Georgian folly, built in 1757 for the 2nd Duke of Atholl and dramatically sited just below the waterfall. Its now under National Trust for Scotland ownership, free to visit and open daily - each October, a backdrop of russet leaves makes what is already a beguiling viewpoint even more magnificent. If autumn colours (or waterfalls) are your thing, put it on your shortlist... or for something more ambitious, extend your exploration to take in Pine Cone Point.
