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, and none too taxing two hour dander through some spectacular scenery. The power of the... More

The force of nature is outstanding at this place, beautiful, stunning. Nature at its best. We stopped on our way to visit castle Menzies there is a sign which says rumbling bridge. Car park just off the road then a minutes walk to the river. If your out this way it's not to be missed.

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. Ossian's Hall is a folly where visitors can stand in safety to enjoy the cascading... 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.

We spent a wonderful morning walking in this stunning location. Good shoes enhance the experience although the walk is not too difficult.

If you want a good tranquil walk visit the hermitage for a trail alongside the river braan spectacular waterfall a reward for your walk a folly is built overlooking the falls if you want to see it at its spectacular best visit in winter when water levels are high

Great walk among woodland with river and waterfalls. Designated paths for disabled access. Only downside is the lack of toilets

This was a great way to start our day! We got up in the summer and arrived to this trail roughly 8:00 on the morning. It was peaceful and we were the only ones there. The trail itself is very wide, flat and easy to follow. We were the only ones there which was nice. This Hermitage bridge we saw... More
