THE HERMITAGE

Oops! I goofed. This is supposed to go before Pitlochry.  I’m doing the posts ahead and I accidentally posted the other one early.

Just west of the A9, is a wooded area called The Hermitage.  The Duke of Atholl planned this tree garden 250 years ago as part of his property in nearby Dunkeld. A trail runs along the River Braan toward a picturesque bridge and Ossian’s Cave. Another feature of the tree garden is an impressive stand of Douglas firs, said to include some of the tallest trees in Scotland.
