The Fall of the Brahan, or Falls of Braan, near Dunkeld, Perthshire

The Falls of Braan lie in a wooded gorge, to the west of Dunkeld in Perthshire. Today the woodland area is known as the 'Hermitage' and it is easily accessible just off the main A9 road. The falls are overlooked by an 18th-century folly known as 'Ossian's Hall'.

The illustration is from 'A Journey from Edinburgh through Parts of North Britain: containing Remarks of Scottish Landscape' by Alexander Campbell, London, 1802
