Scotland’s Hermitage Waterfall – Weekly Travel Photo

by Alex Berger on December 7, 2012

The Hermitage

Located about 50 miles north of Edinburgh is one of Scotland’s small gems: the Hermitage.   A beautiful site, this small park is a National Trust for Scotland location and rests along the River Braan.  Depending on the time of the year you’ll find large salmon working their way up the river.  You can pause at Ossian’s Hall which overlooks the main falls and enjoy watching the salmon throw themselves at (and eventually up) these decently sized falls.  It’s a beautiful place for a casual walk and has an incredibly rich, lush, green and alive feel to it.  The Hermitage is home to a large selection of beautiful Douglas Fir trees.

The Hermitage is home to two Georgian follies.  Georgian follies are interesting creations that were designed to look old/historic and served very little purpose/were almost purely ornamental.  They’re often deceptively new (only 100-150 years or so) but look much older.

This photo is absolutely amazing. This is one in a million. I’m not an expert, but I still can’t believe how great it looks. Perfect use of black and white. The textures are spectacular.
