Falls of Bruar
Stay At Fisher's Hotel
The Falls of Bruar are a series of waterfalls on the Bruar Water in Scotland. The cumulative height of all the main waterfalls combined was said to be 60m. This pretty waterfall is just a brisk two-mile hike from the House of Bruar shopping complex and is located roughly 8 miles from Pitlochry.
The falls are located on an 18th-century plantation, designed by the Duke of Atholl. The Falls of Bruar has been popularised by an 11-verse poem titled “The Humble Petition of Bruar Water to the Noble Duke of Atholl” by Robert Burns. In this poem, Burns was petitioning to the Duke of Atholl to improve the landscape surrounding the Falls of Bruar by planing the number of trees seen today around the banks of the Bruar Water. After Burns passed away, the Duke was inspired to create an idyllic woodland delight of trees, paths, and bridges to augment the natural beauty of the waterfalls, which overall has created the gorgeous scenery seen at the Falls today.
