The Hermitage is to be found in a section of the forest.
Folklore and folly
Legend tells that Ossian lived here, a third-century Celtic bard whose mother was turned into a deer by Fer Doirich. He is said to have inhabited a cave which can be found on the north bank of the Braan located upstream from Ossian's Hall, a Victorian folly which is replete with Corinthian architrave and cornice. This folly was built on a horseshoe plan facing a waterfall and so amplifies the roaring sound of water.
