There are few places more atmospheric than a loch at dusk. Loch Rannoch, a beautiful, mystical loch that’s watched over by iconic Scottish mountains and home to a wide variety of wildlife, offers an unforgettable evening experience for visitors.
Join us for a drive along the loch roads as evening falls, and witness the animals and birds enjoying the water undisturbed. Hear stories of the Rannoch area in times past, and relax in the peace and tranquillity.
Our long-wheelbase Land Rover comfortably seats 8 passengers plus our guide. It’s the perfect transport for our beautiful country roads and to get us close to the loch for a great view. Binoculars are provided in the vehicle for every passenger.
Starting from pick-up at the village square, Kinloch Rannoch, we’ll take you on a lovely atmospheric drive round the edge of Loch Rannoch while it’s still (just) light. Then we’ll stop by the water to enjoy the fading light at dusk, which can be the most magical of Scottish sights.
At certain times of year you’ll also be able to witness the rut of the regal red deer, which is awe-inspiring and unforgettable.
Then we’ll drive to arguably the best-located railway station in the country – Rannoch Station – and to the majestic wilds of Rannoch Moor, with a bit of off-roading to really enjoy the landscape.
Evening is a great time to see our wonderful wildlife, so after a leisurely drive we’ll stop by the loch and watch nature in action. Our native red deer come to the water’s edge in evening time, and you could also see osprey and eagles swooping for prey or just enjoying the evening air.
Our guides also have years of experience on Scottish country estates, so you’ll get a fascinating glimpse into the life of a working Scottish estate.
You’ll also see the unique Rannoch Station and the wild Rannoch Moor at dusk, which will be an unforgettable experience.
