Glen Lyon


Tour Rannoch, Geal Charn

Beyond Schiehallion, to the west, is Geal Charn, 2,593 ft., which rises at the head of Gleann Mor. From the south shores of Loch Rannoch, on the edge of the Black Wood of Rannoch, where the native Caledonian pine is still to be seen growing, a path leads over the hills giving access to Glen Lyon. Beyond the reservoir, to the east of the village, a road diverges northwards, climbing to over 1,000 ft., and later descending through Glen Erochy to reach Struan in Glen Garry. Another road climbs steeply on to the moors to the south-east of Kinloch Rannoch, and after passing the ruined St. Blane's Chapel at Lassintullich, goes close to the lower slopes of Schiehallion on the way to the little Loch Kinardochy near White Bridge.
