Conway welcome you to the Moor of Rannoch Hotel at Rannoch Station. A
quote from the book "Iron Road to the Isles by Michael Pearson"
"Arguably RANNOCH is one of the most romantic
railway destinations in the world. It stands in splendid isolation;
eighty seven miles from Glasgow, thirty five miles from Fort William,
and a little matter of sixteen from Kinloch Rannoch, the nearest
settlement of any size. Panic sets in as the train rumbles away into
the distance: "What am I doing here, I must have been mad to get off
the train," Then slowly but surely your confidence returns, stress
evaporates and a sense of well-being takes over. There’s no signal for
your mobile phone, you cannot be got at, an invigorating feeling of
optimism and potential manifests itself in your mind. However long you
are here for, it is not time to be killed, but time to be treasured".
to come up to this hotel several times a year for many years to enjoy
the atmosphere and the walking and liked it so much I eventually
bought the hotel with my wife Liz. It really is a "De-Stress Zone"
where you get away from the fast life of major cities to an area of
Scotland that is wild and remote and yet with the local train station
just next door you can easily get to London and Glasgow but also to
places like Fort William and Malaig on the way to Skye and beyond.
