Built for the second Duke of Atholl in 1758 and restored in 1953, this folly sits on a rocky outcrop overlooking the turbulent Black Linn Fall, which affords fine views of the distant woodlands.

Staying in the area have visited here a couple of times great place for a leg stretch with or without the dogs (muddy after rain). Nice views along the walk as well as from Ossians Hall. Forms part of the Dunkeld and Birnam path network
