Schiehallion Mountain
Kinloch Rannoch


Tour Scotland, Schiehallion

Overlooking Kinloch Rannoch from the south-east is mighty Schiehallion, (3,547 feet). This mountain is the ‘Fairy hill of the Caledonians’ which was said to contain a magic cave whence those who ventured inside it never returned. Its majestic cone makes Schiehallion one of the most attractive of all Scotland’s mountains. It looks particularly impressive when seen from the north side
of Loch Rannoch.

Beyond the head of Loch Rannoch, past little Loch Eigheach, and beyond Rannoch Station where the road abruptly terminates, stretches Rannoch Moor, twenty square miles of peat-bog, rivulets and bog-sedge, bleak and desolate, but surrounded by some of the finest mountain scenery in the country.
