Rob and Liz 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" says...

"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".

I used 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.

The Caledonian Night Sleeper runs from London Euston (and picks up from Crewe and Preston on the way up) direct to Rannoch at 9.00pm. Before confirming your booking with us, please ensure that there is space available on the sleeper (Scotrail Reservations on Phone 0845 755 0033 or internet

The sprinter train runs Monday to Saturday three times a day from Glasgow Queen Street to Fort William, stopping at Rannoch.

There is a bus service running from the Hotel to Kinloch Rannoch with connections onward. Times and Frequency are listed in the Hotel. If you are travelling by car, be sure you have plenty of fuel, as the nearest garage is 38 miles away.

Rannoch provides many walking and cycling routes for the beginner to the experienced walker/cyclist with breathtaking views throughout your journey. For the keen angler, there are many lochs and rivers containing trout and perch in the Rannoch area. The hotel is the starting point of many circular walks and detailed routes from 3 to 12 miles are available for guests upon request.

For those interested in Scottish clans you can take the clan trail around Loch Rannoch where you can see the lands that clans MacDonald, Menzies, MacGregor, MacDougall, Cameron, Robertson and Stewart lived.

This is a place you can leave the car behind and enjoy getting back to nature and a more leisurely life style. In the hotel you'll find loads of books to read, board games to play and even a jigsaw which is a real community effort. You can site beside a cosy log fire in the winter and warming bowls of home made soup or have a full meal in the restaurant with fabulous views over the moors. 

All rooms are en suite at £40.00 per person per night inclusive of a full (or lighter) Scottish Breakfast. A Table will be automatically reserved for you to dine in the restaurant in the evening. Should you choose to sample some of our wonderful walks, we would be pleased to supply you with packed lunch. If you do propose to walk, be sure to bring suitable clothing. We have drying facilities at the Hotel. We assure you of a different and memorable stay with us and look forward to welcoming you to the Moor of Rannoch Hotel.

Rob and Liz Conway

The Moor of Rannoch Hotel is a non smoking hotel and we welcome dogs who also get their own free breakfast! :-)
