There are four welcoming traditional Scottish holiday cottages within the private grounds of Rannoch Lodge. The cottages are set well apart from each other in 30 acres of woodland and park, in a spectacular setting at the head of Loch Rannoch.

There is half a mile of private beach along the head of the loch, where cottage guests may fish without the need for a permit, the loch is famous for its wild brown trout - there are also pike, perch and char. There are two boats that guests may rent for fishing on the Loch (a license is required and can be obtained from the manager.)

There are stunning views across the loch, and plenty of walks on forest paths in the Lodge's own hill land. The Lodge's hill land is the start of the climbers' path to Ben Alder round Loch Ericht. There are excellent walks to the Black Wood of Rannoch or through the hills to Schiehallion, Ben Lawers and Glen Lyon.

This is a beautiful part of Perthshire and wonderful place for a family holiday in tranquil surroundings. The train journey from rannoch station to Mallaig is considered one of the 'Great Train Journeys of the World' and is a great trip. Ploughman's Cottage is a wonderful location for a Scottish holiday in a stunning part of Perthshire.
