About this place

Linn of Tummel is a 19ha woodland property where the rivers Garry and Tummel meet – linne is Gaelic for ‘deep pool’. The slow, calm Garry and the crashing, fast-flowing Tummel feed into Loch Faskally, surrounded by woodland. The property is at the heart of ‘Big Tree Country’ and exemplifies the much-lauded Highland Perthshire landscape.

The picturesque combination of water and woodland is also home to a rich variety of wildlife. This stretch of Perthshire countryside is ideal for a revitalising walk.
