Overview

The Rannoch Station Visitors Centre was opened by the famous botanist David Bellamy in 2005. On the station platform, next to the Tearoom, the Visitors Centre has attractively presented information about the fauna and flora of Rannoch Moor and how the railway line came to be built over 100 years ago. The West Highland railway, from Glasgow to Fort William, is often voted as one of the best in the world.

Rannoch moor station is surrounded by amazing views, the tea room is very intimate and provides a great selection of cakes, sandwiches, breakfasts etc. Train line is part of the Harry Potter line and you need to visit if staying local.

Located on the station platform, next to the cafe, this turned out to be an interesting way to pick up the history, geography and wildlife info on the local area. Far better than I expected for a half hour well spent
