Owner description: 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.

Started at the car park with complete inability for the French to buy a car park ticket, and unable to read the sign that directed people to the other machine.
So we knew it would be fun when they were faced with two doors entrance to the hall, neither door working the same as the other.
Once into Ossianic hall it's a great view, noisy but perfect.
In a typical British way we all waited our turn for photo opps and then had a quick look and returned....why can't the British share a little space for very long?
It's a view that never fails to deliver....and have a read of the walls too!

I first became aware of this area in the early '70s and the Hermitage home of Ossian's Hall has been a firm favourite since.
The updated version I believe is very popular for weddings and all manner of celebrations but for me it is the portal to the famous falls at the other side that sets it apart. What a view and what an experience, wonderful.

Well worth the great short walk from Dunkeld in a spectacular setting. The water falls are a spectacular site from the veranda. Definitely a folly of unusual design and position.

This is just a small folly, but despite the door looking like the stonework, and seeming shut, it is worth the time spent to push in to this small chapel-like building. The sound of the waterfalls will increase, and once you get your space on the little balcony, everyone in the group will be reaching for the cameras!
Enjoy yourself.

It is a surprise to find this unusual feature as part of the Hermitage close to Dunkeld. The unique building allows visitors to have a special view of the falls and provides great photo opportunities.
