A Beauty Spots in Perthshire
The Hermitage area was once part of one of the most important 18th century picturesque landscapes in Scotland, an attractive woodland walk leads though spectacularly large Douglas firs to the amazing folly, Ossian's Hall overlooking the Black Linn waterfall.
From Dunkeld-Birnam Station to The Hermitage: Walk north through Birnam and just before the bridge over the River Tay take the steps down to the river bank (these are beside the old tollhouse on your right immediately before the bridge). Turn left and follow the footpath through the grounds of the Forestry Commission offices into the small village of Inver. Head through towards the A9 road. Upon reaching the A9 turn left along the footpath and youâ€™ll soon arrive at The Hermitage.

The Private House Stay's Guide
The town of Perth lies at the southern end of a district that extends North along the A9, through Dunkeld and Pitlochry to Inverness-shire. For the purposes of this guide the area North of Pitlochry is defined as Highland Perthshire and the area East of Dunkeld and South of the Cairngorm national park is defined as East Perthshire. The A9 dual-carriageway road is the main artery for traffic to the North but is only an hour from Edinburgh and makes Perthshire one of the most desirable areas of Scotland in which to live. The Annual Pitlochry arts festival gets worldwide aclaim, while the area has a wealth of History, Heritage and visitor attractions as well the scenery, waterfalls, wildlife and crafts that can be found across the Highlands. Perthshire contains many of Scotland's best country House Hotels.
