The Hermitage Bridge, Dunkeld 5
Photographer: Wilson, George Washington
Medium: Photographic print
"From the base of Craigvinean, there projects a long wooded eminence across whch a path leads to Ossian's Hall. This Hermitage, or summer-house, generally esteemed the greatest curiosity about Dunkeld, is 40 feet above the Fall, and placed in such a manner that the cascade is entirely concealed by its walls...
The scenery around the Hermitage has recently been somewhat spoiled through the carelessness or ignorance of a workman who misunderstood the orders of the late Duke, and, instead of cleaning out the Hermitage as desired, cut down and cleared away a great part of the beautiful shrubbery which surrounded it."
