Exploring Rannoch from Camusericht
Loch Rannoch is 22 miles in circumference and offers breathtaking views whether you drive,cycle or even walk around it. Everyday there is something different to catch your eye, whether it is a mirror effect over the water on a calm day or the colours of the trees in Autumn.
The loch also has two stunning majestic mountains which rise up and giving beautiful views and fantastic mirror images on the surface. To the east "Schiehallion" a "Munro" standing tall at 1083 metres. To the south easta and opposite the guesthouse "Meall Buidhe" a "Corbett" reaching 910 mtres.
Clan Trail - There is a trail around the Loch, we will provide you with a leaflet with directions and information to guide you around. The MacDonald's,Menzies,MacGregor's,MacDougall's, Robertson's. Stewart's & Cameron Clans all roamed & lived in the area.
Eilean Nam Faoileag (Gull Island) - The Tower in the Loch. The island was a Crannog (an artifical island) built for defence purposes by the clans. There are references dating back to the 15th-17th AD Century of this island being occupied. Recent radiocarbon dating of a piece of imbedded timber found under the mound of stones gave a date of 1110 AD.
The tower however is a 19th Century folly assumed to have been built by Baron Granbley and is said to be a reconstruction of an island prison that the Robertson's of Struan had used.
Bridge Of Gaur - The three arched bridge was built by order of Sir Neil Menzies in 1838 to acknowledge the accession of Queen Victoria.
