Hermitage & Braan Excursion
This delightful walk is in the heart of Perthshire’s ‘Big Tree Country’. The walk starts at the National Trust for Scotland car park off the A9 at Inver as we walk throughteh beautiful wooded glen of the Hermitage. The hermitage is famous for the spectacular trees, picturesque follies and attractive waterfalls. The walk route continues towards the dramatic and impressive Rumbling Bridge before we cross the A822 on our return route through more open fields and woodland. The terrain is good with clear waymarked paths. There is abundant opportunity to see wildlife including deer and red squirrels.
The nature of hill walking potentially involves leaders or other participants in providing close assistance to others. For everybody’s protection those people classified as ‘vulnerable adults’ or young people under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an appropriate carer or responsible adult. No special arrangements are available to provide independent supervision for vulnerable people, and the accompanying carer takes full responsibility for them. The carer or parent is best placed to judge the capability of their charges.
We do ask that you only bring children on a walk if you are confident that they will be able to complete it comfortably. At all times, children must be accompanied by an appropriate adult who must take full responsibility for them.
3. Lower age limits.
No children under the age of 16 are allowed on Extra Hard or Hard walks. Children over the age of 12 are permitted on Medium and Easy walks provided that they are accompanied by a responsible adult.
In common with other similar events and in consideration for others, dogs are not allowed (guide dogs excepted).
Please do not smoke on walks, out of consideration to others.
