Rannoch Barracks



 
 

Rannoch Barracks was a military barrack constructed in 1746 at Bridge of Gaur, at the western end of Loch Rannoch in response to the Jacobite uprising of 1745 and to oveawe the Robertson clan who resided in the area.
It was altered by Sir Robert Menzies between 1798 and 1803 to serve as a shooting lodge when 2 asymmetrical wings with splayed ends were added.
The present Rannoch Barracks is the Scottish residence of Baron Pearson of Rannoch, former leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP). It is situated on a private 6,000-acre (2,400 ha) estate but can be seen from slopes of Meall Chomraidh with the meandering Allt Chomraidh passing it by.
