Ossian's Hall

Ossian's Hall was built in 1857 by Lord John Murray (son of the Jacobite Lord George Murray) for the 2nd Duke of Atholl. It is built above a waterfall on the River Braan, west of Dunkeld.

Ossian's Hall is a circular building which opens out onto a balcony above the falls. The walls and ceiling of the hall were originally covered in mirrors to reflect the water.

Ossian's Hall is located within The Hermitage, which is managed by the National Trust for Scotland.
