Once part of one of the most important 18th century picturesque landscapes in Scotland, an attractive woodland walk leads though spectacularly large Douglas firs (including one of the tallest trees in the country) to the amazing folly, Ossian’s Hall overlooking the Black Linn waterfall.

Follow in the footsteps of notable visitors of the past including Wordsworth, Queen Victoria, Mendelssohn and Turner as you wander around this magnificent designed landscape with it’s dramatic natural features.

Ossian Hall was refurbished in 2007 with sliding panels and mirrored artwork to recreate the illusions of shock, surprise and amazement, the aims of its original design.

Enjoy the wildlife as you walk along the river Braan, with the dark foaming pool and the spectacular Black Linn waterfall. Let your imagination run wild as you admire the Totem pole, carved from a Douglas Fir tree by a native Canadian from the Squamish Nation. Extend your walk by linking in to one of the trails of the Dunkeld walks network.
