Visit Kinloch Rannoch and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Kinloch Rannoch, Perth and Kinross. This village at the East end of Loch Rannoch, at the point where the River Tummel flows out of the loch, is at the centre of an area of great scenic beauty. From the village, roads run on either side of Loch Rannoch. Along the North shore, the views westward to the summits that guard the entrance to Glencoe are magnificent. Though today the road ends at Rannoch Station on the edge of Rannoch Moor, this is the route celebrated in song as “The Road to the Isles”.
On the South shores near Dali, the road skirts the verge of the famous Black Wood of Rannoch. Here the Scots pines of the primeval Caledonian forest are regenerating themselves, thanks to conservation work by the Forestry Commission. The forest was almost extinguished in the 17th and 18th centuries to provide timber for a variety of purposes, including the building of many houses in Perth. Today, the remaining mature pines are as much as 60 to 70 ft in height and 14 ft in girth; they may be anything up to 250 years old.
At Lassintullich are the remains of an early chapel dedicated to St Blane, who died in A.D. 590. Just South West of the ruin is a slab of stone with a cross carved in relief, and nearby stands a crude holy-water stoup.
Many house foundations can be traced on the site of the early village of Bunrannoch, including at the East end the footings of a circular building, which is probably an Iron Age ring-fort similar to those in Glen Lyon.
