Lovely riverside/woodland walk full of surprises

A great stop-off from the northbound A9. The car park is well signed from the road - parking is £3 (cash only, no change) but if you find yourself short people will pass on their ticket as they leave...

There are a number of choices for a walk, ranging from a 20-min there-and-back to a couple of hours. We took the 45 minute option, which was well signed, and followed the river to an amazing hall/folly with a viewing platform over the falls and some inspirational poetry depicted on the walls. A great, easy but varied walk to break up a long journey.
