We commenced our day at Dunkeld in central Scotland in warm sunshine. First we stopped at nearby Ossian’s Hall which entails a number of experiences. Here we walked along a trail on the banks of the River Braan, Scotland’s shortest river, passing though some heavily wooded areas until we reached Ossian’s Hall ( like a small house) which leads to a stunning view of the waterfall. As river levels are low the Falls of Braan were subdued but, nevertheless, a worthwhile experience.
