Loch Rannoch Lodge


This large traditional Sporting Lodge is the ideal place to unwind and relax with friends and family. It provides something for everyone, whether it be relaxing in front of the large open fire, swimming in the indoor swimming pool, playing snooker, using the gym or enjoying a drink in the conservatory whilst looking out across the wild Scottish landscape. Furnished with fine antiques and artwork, the eclusive-use lodge provides a setting that will ensure you have a memorable holiday.

The large indoor heated swimming pool can be enjoyed year round and on those warm sunny summer days, you can wander through the wide, open doors and sunbathe on the lawn. Above the pool is a billiard room which also contains an exercise bike and weight lifting equipment.

Stalking - Upland Land Management Program as directed by the Scottish Government (Scottish National Heritage)

Stalking red or roe deer is a fascinating way to discover Scotland’s landscape and culture.  You will spend time walking through beautiful landscapes – mountains, glens and forests – as you go in search of the deer. 

Please also discuss stalking the deer with your binoculars or camera.

The red deer on the estate are carefully managed on a sustainable basis producing healthy quality food in balance with the local environment. Deer welfare, conservation and environmental enhancement are important initiatives for the estate.  Should you wish to arrange stalking, you will spend time with one of the estate stalkers on the hill. The tradition of deer stalking will offer you an insight into Scottish culture which many other visitors will never experience. Deer stalking is the term we use in Scotland for hunting and shooting deer. It is an important part of modern-day land management. It also contributes to the local economy; helps protect many native plants and species and maintain a healthy and strong population of red deer. Deer stalking is also a traditional activity in Scotland, a link to the traditional culture of the Highlands. 

Red Stag season 1st July to 20th October
Roebucks 1st April to 20th October and does 21st October to 31st March
During the season Stalking red deer is available by arrangement
