#4 of 8 in Nature in Pitlochry
Waterfall · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
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.
