This place takes you back in history to imagine what it must have been like when first built. When you first enter it seems ordinary and bleak but you are greeted with breath taking views of the falls as soon as you slide open the giant door into the main room. A place of peace and tranquility.

We found it difficult to open the doors but when you go inside you are wowed by this enchanting fairytale place. You go out to the balcony and see the amazing views of the waterfall. Worthwhile to come by

Take your time and enjoy .. then go inside the hall and soak up the waterfall. Stroll on to the Ossian cave further on.

Visit in autumn after rain in the hills and when river has risen to watch salmon attempt the Black Lynn Falls. Watch also for the dippers and, on milder evenings for the Daubenton's bats skimming over the pool in moonlight.

It's only a half mile walk from the car park. The path was damp, covered with fallen leaves but not particularly muddy. It's worth it to see the falls and the quaint folly, even this second week in November. Lovely.

Stunning views of the waterfall. It wasn't busy when I was there so I was alone for quite a time and could enjoy it even more.

Just a short walk from the car park, alongside the burn and you come to this amazing place. Don't be tempted to go onto the bridge as this will spoil the surprise! Go up the steps, into the door of the Hall, wait until everyone is inside, then open the sliding door and let the sudden view amaze you all.... More
