Kinloch Rannoch is a pretty settlement situated close to the east end of Loch Rannoch.
Founded in the 18th century after the Jacobite rebellion, the main square was built in the mid Victorian period by Sir John MacDonald of Dalchosnie.
The village has an excellent general store, The Country Store, a lovely cafe: Riverbank Cafe, hotels: The Dunalastair Hotel Suites and the Macdonald Loch Rannoch Hotel, and interesting churches and a children's playground.
There is a nature walk, a beautiful waterfall that is easily accessible and the obelisk in the square is to Dougald Buchanan, an 18th century evangelist, Gaelic scholar, and poet.
The location for the standing stones in the first season of Outlander is in the district. The stones do not exist in reality but the site is an ancient bronze-age homestead.
Our current Local Information Leaflet is available in shops and hotels.
