Rannoch is the venue for part of the Etape Caledonia, an annual cycling event in May in which over 3000 cyclists take part on closed roads.  

This is a great cycling area with quiet roads and challenging hills as well as off road tracks for mountain biking.  Perfect for all abilities.

Escape Route - Based in Pitlochry - Everything to do with cycling including bike hire. 

We had birds visiting the feeders including pheasants and woodpecker. The red squirrel came by in the morning. The best bit...open the front door and see the view!....
