Hermitage Park Sign

Location: Hermitage Park, Denkeld, Scotland
 
A trip to Scotland took us to the Hermitage Park in the town of Denkeld. Nestled on the banks of the River Braan in the Craigvinean Forest, it covers 33 acres of woodland with a diverse collection of trees and plants.

According to our guide, the park was created by the 3rd Duke of Atholl in the 18th century who used a cannon to scatter the tree seeds on the inaccessible areas.

He led us to the park’s most popular trail heading to the Black Linn Falls. He pointed to the different trees and plants that we encountered.

Along the way, we stopped occasionally to marvel at one of Britain’s tallest Douglas fir trees, learn about toxic plants like the Hogweed, or simply for no other reason than to enjoy the view.

If you love nature, it’s a great place to hike. However, it’s suggested that you don’t do it alone and take a companion with you. That way, if you get lost, you won’t be crying by yourself. Ok, I’m only kidding. But seriously, it’s best to have an experienced guide to show you around.
