Once part of one of the most important 18th century picturesque landscapes in Scotland, an attractive woodland walk leads though spectacularly large Douglas firs to the amazing folly, Ossian's Hall overlooking the Black Linn waterfall.
The footpaths are part of a much wider local footpath network covering 30 miles of walks.

The hall was designed to amaze and shock its visitors, it still tries to!

Visitors have included William Wordsworth, J M W Turner and Queen Victoria

The property lies within the Tay National Scenic Area
