Black Linn Falls, The Hermitage, Perthshire

The Story Behind the Image - Black Linn Falls, The Hermitage, Perthshire

The Hermitage is a beautifully landscaped woodland near Dunkeld, Perthshire. The woodland was laid out in the 18th century by the Dukes of Atholl, who intended it as a pleasure ground for their property of Dunkeld House.

Throughout the woodland, they built picturesque follies such as Ossian's Cave, a mysterious manmade cave. One folly was known as Ossian's Hall. It stands above the beautiful waterfall known as Black Linn Falls on the River Braan.

Beside the viewing platform is Hermitage Bridge. If you follow a trail through an archway in the bridge you emerge onto slippery rocks directly in front of the waterfall.

That's the view seen here. I've photographed the Falls several times, but this is probably my favourite view.
