Discover one of Europe’s surviving wildernesses
A vast, sprawling peaty, lonely plateau with lochs and lochans, renowned as one of the last remaining wildernesses in Europe, Rannoch Moor provides an unforgettable highlight for many of our guests here at the Dunalastair Hotel Suites. This sprawling stretch of rambling lush hills, open waters and rocky pathways boasts some of the most impressive views anywhere in the Highlands.
One of the best ways to experience this vast area of wide open landscapes, littered with snow-topped mountains, lochs and free-flowing rivers, is to take the famous West Highland Railway from Rannoch station.
Whether or not you’re planning a trip, Rannoch Station is well worth a visit and provides a charming respite from your walk through the wilderness.
Rannoch Station itself is a lonely outpost, which despite being over 100 years old, is a well preserved fully operational station with a handful of trains daily. The Tea Room and Shop (open from March to October) will welcome you with a tasty homemade menu, and here you can stock up on walker’s provisions, maps and charming gifts.
