The Falls of Bruar are a series of waterfalls on the Bruar Water in Scotland, about 8 miles (13 kilometres) from Pitlochry in the council area of Perth and Kinross. They have been a tourist attraction since the 18th century and were immortalized in a poem by Robert Burns, The Humble Petition of Bruar Water to the Noble Duke of Atholl, supposedly from the river itself entreating the Duke to plant some trees in the then barren landscape.

  • A gentle hike to the viewpoint by the lower falls and then a further one and a half mile hike to the upper falls and back. Path was not crowded and the sense of "forest bathing" was lovely. There's also a huge shopping outlet close by where you can get a variety of food and ice creams.
  • Absolutely beautiful. Very underrated. A real hidden gem. It was a lovely gentle walk with clear pathways suitable for all the family. In some parts it was a little steep for one or 2 steps but but it was achievable. The lovely bridges and natural pools were stunning. Give the shopping a miss and head straight here instead.
