The Hermitage, Dunkeld – This stretch of magical Perthshire forest was

originally designed as a pleasure ground in the 18th century for the Dukes

of Atholl. Douglas firs tower over the paths leading to the roaring Black Linn Falls,

where the River Braan crashes down into the deep, foaming pools below.

Overlooking the waterfall is the picturesque folly known as Ossian’s Hall, built in

1757 as the focal point in an extensive designed landscape.

The Birnam Oak – The Birnam Oak, a sessile oak, so called because its acorns

are not on stalks (the Latin word sessilis means stalkless), is believed to be a

Dunkeld Cathedral – Dunkeld is thought to date back to the sixth century when a

monastery was founded beside the River Tay. Kenneth MacAlpin, the first King of

Scotland, moved the bones of St Columba to Dunkeld around the middle of the

9th century, which established Dunkeld as the first ecclesiastical capital of

medieval Scotland . Building of the present day Dunkeld Cathedral began in

the 12th century and additions were added up to the 16th.
