Be at one with nature on Rannoch Moor...
Curlews & Grouse play in the dense heather, Roe Deer graze early morning on the open ground whilst herds of Red Deer come down to the lower grounds in the cooler months, Red Squirrels jump about in the Pines & Beeches along the South shores of Loch Rannoch and rare sightings of Scottish wildcats have also been recorded. Birds of Prey such as Golden Eagles, Hobby Falcons, Kestrels, Hen Harriers & Ospreys can be spotted in the skys above Rannoch Moor.
