Kinloch Rannoch, Perth and Kinross

Kinloch Rannoch is a village in Perth and Kinross, Scotland, at the eastern end of Loch Rannoch, 18 miles (29 km) west of Pitlochry, on the banks of the River Tummel. The village is a tourist and outdoor pursuits centre. It has a small population and is fairly remote. The name of the village is a slight oddity as Kinloch normally refers to a place at the head of a loch, not the foot. On the road to Rannoch Station is the church of A. E. Robertson at Braes of Rannoch.
