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.

I just simply love it here. I manage to take the best picture of my whole trip of Scotland here. This hall is basically opens up and you are able to walk out and take pictures of the waterfall.

I hadn't heard about this before until my husband explained it to me so I was very glad to visit it and read about its history. The viewing chamber was spectacular looking down on the waterfalls

This is well worth a visit when down near the Hermitage. There are spectacular views across the waterfalls and plenty photo taking opportunities.

A very impressive view, which shows the power the river has at all times of the year. Excellent whilst incorporating the Hermitage Walk.

Beautiful 4 mile round-trip hike to a dramatic waterfall and Ossian's Hall overlooking the falls. Located in the Hermitage. Wish we had time to do more hikes in this area.
