Rannoch station tearoom reopens

It is pleasing to report that the Rannoch station tearoom was reopened in July, after several years of change and inactivity.

New owners Bill Anderson and his wife Jenny have had a busy first week, proving popular with the many hillwalkers, tourists and others visiting the station in its spectacular scenic location on Rannoch Moor.  This has included both those alighting from the train and by car, at the end of the single track road from Pitlochry.

The tearoom is housed in the beautifully-restored West Highland Railway 'Swiss chalet' station building, providing refreshments in what is an otherwise isolated location.  It is most ideal for those out walking across the moor towards Corrour and Glencoe, or to the shores of nearby Loch Laidon.

Soups, toasties, cakes and cream teas are just some of the delicacies on offer to visitors, while the station's visitor centre has information about the wildlife, fauna and flora to be seen on the moor.  The tearoom is open six days a week (closed on Fridays) from 8.30am to 4.30pm.
