Falls of Bruar

The Falls of Bruar are some of the most spectacular natural waterfalls in Perthshire and a real must-see! The landscape today is a testament to the poet Robert Burns, who inspired the 4th Duke of Atholl to plant the once bare river banks resulting in the beautiful woodlands you see today. The circular woodland walks climb up through the gorge to two stone bridges that offer fantastic views of the falls whose banks are flanked by trees. Enjoy a cuppa at the House of Bruar afterwards.
