The Rannoch area is a beguiling mix of mountain vistas, dense forests, heather-rich moors and one of Scotland’s most majestic lochs. Not to mention a famously atmospheric moor and the country’s best-located train station! Imagine being able to see all of this from the comfort of a spacious Land Rover, in the company of family and friends – and our friendly local guide who’ll tell you stories of Rannoch past and present.
Our Land Rover Explorations are sure to delight visitors of all ages.
We’ll be touring in style in our long-wheelbase Land Rover, which comfortably seats 6 passengers plus our guide. It’s the perfect transport for our beautiful country roads. Binoculars are provided in the vehicle for every passenger.
We’ll meet up with you at the village square, Kinloch Rannoch, and from there we’ll drive you in comfort round Loch Rannoch, one of the most beautiful and historically fascinating lochs in Scotland. After that we’ll head to Rannoch Station, arguably the most interesting and special station in the UK, then over to Rannoch Moor, a remote and stunningly beautiful wilderness that stretches for around 50 square miles and forms part of the famous West Highland Way.
It’s a spectacular landscape and there’s no better way to enjoy it than with our knowledgeable guide.
Your experienced and knowledgeable local guide will drive you along the scenic loch roads, and you’ll be able to see the whole loch from every angle. Then it’ll be a fascinating trip to Rannoch Moor and Rannoch Station. Your guide will also point out significant historical locations, wildlife and other natural delights, and make sure you experience all the best views, before returning to your starting point.

Our Land Rover Explorations run every day from Monday to Friday inclusive, for around 2 hours, from 5.00pm to 7.00pm during the autumn months. These are approximate times - we pride ourselves on being as flexible as possible, so if it suits you better to go half an hour earlier or half an hour later, we'll be happy to work around you if we can! Once you've booked online, give us a call on 07795 245748 and we'll arrange times and where to meet up - we could even collect you if that makes it easier.
The explorations last for minimum 2 hours, which will give you time to relax, unwind and enjoy the beautiful scenery, as you find out more about the area’s rich history and culture.
If you'd like to arrange a daytime Land Rover Exploration, please call us on 07795 245748 and we'll do our best to find a time that suits you.
