Loch Rannoch stretches 16 km from Kinloch Rannoch to Bridge of Gaur in the west and has a recorded depth of 440 ft. This loch lies on the traditional main route north to the west coast of Scotland, known famously as the Road to the Isles. However, some major road construction work in the 19th century bypassed Rannoch, leaving the area unspoiled and unchanged.
The 35 km road circuit around Loch Rannoch is perfect for cycling as it’s gently undulating and relatively traffic-free. Sandy beaches on the north shore are an ideal excuse for a rest or picnic and offer breathtaking views. There are a series of informative storyboards at accessible points around the loch shore. They tell the fascinating tales of clans prominent in the district before the 19th and 20th centuries.
