The Hermitage, Dunkeld

This photograph shows a view of Ossian's Cave and the bridge over the River Braan at the Hermitage, Dunkeld. Now registered as a National Trust Protected Site, the Hermitage was developed by the Duke of Atholl during the eighteenth century, reportedly in honour of the fictitious blind bard Ossian, a product of James MacPherson.

The Hermitage is also home to some of Britain's tallest trees, a collection of Douglas Firs planted in the late 19th century. The tallest specimen now stands in excess of 59 metres (194 feet) and is located just to the inside left of the bridge. The sculpted park is a popular destination among Scottish visitors and foreign tourists alike.
