Designer styled lodge in the highlands.
You can take the high road over the moors
but stop at Queens View over Loch Tummel
which fed by River Tummel with its wild waters.
Then carry on through the Caledonian magic
to Loch Rannoch with Glen Coe as a backdrop
and flanked by the magnificient Schiehallion
the 'fairy' mountain
gaze into surreal
where two worlds seem to meet.
Check-in at the lodge
and check-out its room with a view
then its four large double bedrooms
a kitchen / dinner to fit all
and luxury throughout.
Enjoy the patio and landscaped gardens.
Then catch the Hogwarts Express from Rannoch Station
steam through Glen Coe
and glide over Glenfinnan Viaduct towards Mallaig
to watch the sunset over Skye.

“Lovely Location”
Reviewed 5 days ago for a stay in June 2018
NEW

The house is in a lovely location, with beautiful views, and a lovely outside seating area. There is some nice walks around the area too.
Rannoch itself is away from everywhere, and a drive to Pitlochry. There is't even a local shop in Rannoch, so if you want to get things for the house you will have to drive. It's definitely essential to have a car with you.
The house itself is quite nice. Plenty of room and nice big windows, however, we found it was absolutely roasting as it was summer and the heating isn't adjustable.
The water is a funny colour, but don't let that put you off as it still tastes fine.
The beds are soft, but for a few nights they are absolutely fine. It's not how I would lay out a house of that potential, however, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.
I would go again.

“Fabulous holiday”
Reviewed May 21, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We stayed for a week in this beautiful secluded lodge. We were really lucky with regards to the weather (blue skies all week and no rain). We saw herds of red deer and a couple of red squirrels.
The station tearoom (fab cakes) and Queens View are both worth a visit.

Beautiful lodge located in the middle of nowhere. Very quiet and serene atmosphere. Stunning views from the bedroom and living room. Clean & comfortable & spacious accommodation. Ideal for family or friends to spend quality time together away from the hustle & bustle of city life. Will highly recommend

“In the middle of nowhere”
Reviewed May 18, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Enroute to Clachan Talladh, some 21 miles from Pitlochry in Central Scotland, as you drive through narrow winding roads with beautiful views of rolling meadows on both sides,cross the Queen's View Point over Lake Tunnel, drive alongside the long and lovely Lake Rannoch and approach your destination, one encounters a few scattered lodges, of which one of them says "For bookings visit www.middlenowhere. co. uk".

And that's exactly where Clachan Talladh is located - in the middle of nowhere, just across the Bridge of Gaur and 5 miles from Rannoch station.

The log style lodge with a modern design contrasts starkly to the mostly stone houses in the location.

Insides of the lodge is comfortable and could accommodate our family of 6 adults and 3 children. The kitchen is adequately equipped and the living room has good options of board games and movies for kid's entertainment.

The views from the lodge is beautiful, as one can see sheep grazing in the lush green meadows. A short walk from the lodge takes you over the Bridge of Gaur that goes across the Gaur river. Here one gets
scenic views of the hills beyond, with partly melted snow peaks.

As mentioned in the website I got lucky to see a pheasant, a rabbit and a pair of roe deers in the very vicinity of the lodge.

Overall we got what we were looking for - I.e a relaxing time amidst tranquil settings and an opportunity to experience the rustic and raw beauty of Scottish Highlands.

Our booking was done by my Uncle and the proprietor Mr. Mohan was very responsive.

“Beautiful Stay”
Reviewed September 13, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Our visit to Clachan Talladh was a very pleasant one! The house was in a clean condition, however the only improvement we would have suggested was refurbishment of the living room floor! Despite this, the living room was beautiful and spacious with a great range of DVD's, sky package and plenty of leaflets with activities close by to the lodge. The beds were very comfy with all the front facing bedrooms looking out onto the beautiful loch. The kitchen is completely kitted out with utensils that you would need for your stay and plenty of pots and pans. The lodge has a big driveway which could fit all 3 of our cars and still had space for 2 more. The house is surrounded by a lovely decking with picnic benches, however we were unable to use them due to the typical Scottish weather! `Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lodge, the owner was very helpful and got back to us quickly. Initially we were worried as the water was slightly discoloured, however the owner immediately got back to us and explained that it was filtered and safe to drink. I would definitely recommend this lodge!

Thanks for your great review and yes we have to admit the living room floor suffered when we brought in the comfy settee. It was a little heavy but touching up the slate is our priority.

“A good place to stay to experience this part of the Scottish Highlands and get away from it all.”
Reviewed August 21, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The location of the house is at the far end of Loch Rannoch and on the edge of Rannoch Moor. If you are looking for a large, modern and comfortable house where you can get out and enjoy what this part of Scotland has to offer, it is ideal.

We were a party of 8 people, two children under seven, one teenager, two parents and three grandparents and all were comfortably housed in the four bedrooms with plenty of living space. The house was clean, well presented and had everything we needed to enjoy a comfortable holiday.

The location (11 miles from the nearest shop) may not suit everyone but I am sure most people looking for this type of holiday and location will have undertaken their research before booking. There are eating out options far closer but for groceries, while the Kinloch Rannoch village shop has a fair range, an "Asda" grocery delivery booked online would be a sensible and time saving tip.

For us, the location away from the crowds was a real positive factor, enjoying great walks and cycling in spectacular scenery all from the house without even getting in the car. We still travelled quite extensively with plenty to see and do within easy driving distance. There is a bookcase in the house that contains an abundance of local information on things to see and do.

Rannoch station (is five miles away) and we enjoyed a train ride through spectacular scenery from there. Options include to Fort William, Glenfinnan (famous viaduct from Harry Potter film) and Mallaig. Also recommended are Highland Safari's near Aberfeldy who offer trips up into the mountains, forest or mountain biking.

A good family holiday despite the expected changeable Scottish weather and the house and location are recommended.
