Loch Rannoch Highland Resort

your highland retreat


Wake up with a view

The Rannoch Glen is truly one of the most beautiful and historically romantic areas of Scotland, stretching from Pitlochry and Queens View to Rannoch Station. The loch, and the Highland Resort are presided over by the majestic Schiehallion, or Sidh Chailleann in Gaelic (Fairy Hill of the Caledonians). This Munro is one of the best known in Scotland, and offers breathtaking walks and views. The glen includes the two villages of Tummel Bridge and Kinloch Rannoch as well as smaller hamlets such as Killichonan and Bridge of Gaur. It is well worth a drive around Loch Rannoch where the views will delight, and on to a completely different landscape as you approach Rannoch Station where the road ends and from where Rannoch Moor stretches for miles to the west.


Welcome to The Loch Rannoch Highland Resort The Loch Rannoch Highland Resort sits on the banks of Loch Rannoch, in the picturesque village of Kinloch Rannoch, in Perthshire, Scotland. Rannoch has many attractions for the outdoor enthusiast whether that involves being active, making discoveries or just relaxing and observing. We’ve got it all, whether you’re a keen hiker, biker, Munro-bagger or nature-lover. There’s also archery, angling, stalking, shooting and water sports with the mountains, moors and Loch Rannoch on our doorstep. This is a great walking area whatever your ability, and there is much else of interest for those with a natural curiosity or other pursuits in mind. There is a wide network of paths and tracks and the most stunning scenery and views to enjoy while walking. If you enjoy a gentle stroll by the lochside, or in the hills or forests, or want to conquer a munro or a corbet, there’s something here for you.
