The Moor of Rannoch is a 2 AA Rosette restaurant with rooms situated beside Rannoch Station on the West Highland Railway Line. Surrounded by the rugged landscape of Rannoch Moor covering some 130km’s. Often described as one of the last true wildernesses in Europe, the area is a vast stretch of land composed of blanket bog, lochans, rivers and rocky outcrops. The Moor of Rannoch is a warm cosy retreat offering a chance to retreat, relax, unwind & escape. It is perfect for those wishing a haven from the fast paced modern world or equally adventurous explorers keen to sample this unique part of the Scottish landscape. We do not have any TV’s or internet access and there are no phones in the guest rooms. Mobile phone reception also varies from very poor to non existent. To make up for this we have a large selection of books, games and jigsaws and the lounges feature open fires and wood burning stoves. There is also a good range of Malt Whisky to help pass the evenings.

Set in a magnificent, supremely lonely location in one of Europe's last wildernesses, this glorious little boutique hotel can be reached by sleeper train from Euston. Scott and Steph (and sweet Viktoria) were incredibly attentive, welcoming hosts who took so much trouble to make us feel comfortable. We had the corner room looking two ways over the moor (with views of the deer who come up to the hotel for their treat every afternoon), which was surprisingly large, decorated in immaculate taste and full of lovely touches like the high bed (for views of the moor) and the little flask of whisky and home-made truffles. We roamed the hills by day and returned to toast ourselves by the wood stove and sample the vast range of whisky and gin before dinner. The food was quite

Remote, yes, but more than worth the journey to enjoy dinner at Moor of Rannoch. Arrived in the dark, snow on the ground, and immediately at home. Menu based on locally sourced produce, we felt spoiled for choice. The accompaniments were exceptional, and actually just kept coming. Haste we back

We had stayed here twice before & had enjoyed ourselves so we were looking forward to returning for a third time with some friends. This time our experience could not have been more different. Despite having stayed before & notwithstanding that I had been in touch with Scott by email just before we arrived in which it was clear we were repeat guests, on arrival scott came up & introduced himself as if we were strangers coming to the hotel for the first time. From then on it felt like we were not welcome. Service was cold & frosty throughout the weekend - much like the weather. We had intended having lunch at the lovely Rannoch station tearoom on the Friday, after a long walk, but unfortunately the tearoom was closed (it was a Friday). We returned to the hotel & were chatting

Response from Moor-of-Rannoch, Owner at Moor of Rannoch Restaurant & Rooms
Responded 15 Jan 2020
Hi dee090, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of you stay at Moor of Rannoch Restaurant & Rooms. Guest feedback is very important to us and helps us to ensure that we are able to provide the consistent high level of service and warm hospitality that our guests have come to expect. Your review of staying with us 10 months ago in March 2019 clearly shows that on this occasion something has gone wrong which is of great concern to us. In the 7 years that we have owned the Moor of Rannoch Restaurant & Rooms, we have only ever received reviews scoring less than 4/5 on three occasions. We do strive to provide a fantastic guest experience at all times and each year we make significant changes for the following season to try and enhance the hospitality we provide. In hospitality, the welcome that you receive is always the most important contact. We always try and meet guests arriving by train on the station platform, likewise if we see cars arriving into our carpark we will always try and greet our guests outside. Your group of 6 guests arrived at different times with only one of you having stayed before, Scott tries his best to recognise all previous guests but unfortunately with 2500 guests staying with us each year this is hard especially with guests who have stayed with us a few years before. There are also some elements of the check-in procedure that are repeated regardless of the number of times that guests have stayed. Things like mealtimes, keys/security, local information, weather reports are always mentioned to guests as they may have forgotten from previous stays or we may have changed them since previous visits. We do apologise if this came over as cold and frosty, a certain element of the interaction needs to be factual, but it is certainly not meant to come across this way. The Moor of Rannoch Restaurant only serves dinner and in the 7 years we have been here has not been open for lunch. The majority of our guests spend the day exploring the wider Rannoch area of hop on one of the trains. There are some fantastic options in the area for guest who wish a spot of lunch, Rannoch Station Tearoom is a fantastic spot for Jenny's famous cakes, however it is always closed on a Friday. Kinloch Rannoch has the River Bank Cafe as well as the Country Store and two hotels or jumping on one of the trains you could visit any of the other stations such as Corrour Station House Restaurant. We have therefore found that there is very little demand for us to produce lunch and the fact that we do not open for lunch is included in all of our marketing material and website. We do provide quite substantial packed lunches for guests to take out to explore the local area, we ask that these are ordered the evening before to give us time to prepare them. On the odd occasion that the weather turns for the worse some guests do choose to eat their packed lunches in the restaurant in which case we do serve them as requested. Our dinner offering is a set price (£42 Per person - 2019 season) which includes bar snacks, chefs taster, fresh bread, choice of starter, choice of main, pre-dessert, choice of dessert as well as the communal selection of Scottish cheeses which are available for all of our guests to sample from our cheese station in the lounge. Our portion sizes are designed to allow you to sample all of our produce from local supplier as well as some cheeses if you wish. As owners of the business (Scott & Steph) we really do care about the hospitality that we provide. We live on site 24 hours a day, breakfast prep starts at 6.15am and we regularly finish at 1am the following morning. This carries on for the full season that we are open. Over the years we have strived to develop and build a business that we can be proud of and all of our effort is focused around providing the best possible experience for our guests. We do hope that all of our future guests continue to enjoy the unique wilderness and environment of Rannoch Moor and that we can offer an experience to match our surroundings. Regards, Scott & Steph

What a find! Beginning with the drive to Rannoch Station, I knew we were in for something special and I was right. Scott and Steph were welcoming and warm hosts and the Inn felt like home. Our room had a great view of the Moor, with sunrise views in the morning. We slept so well on the comfortable bed, and enjoyed our day on the Moor walking and exploring the area. But, it was the dinners and breakfast (plus our packed lunch!) that was the real treat. Exceptional food, good wine, excellent advice on scotch from a great collection. We felt like we had come to another world during our stay at Moor of Rannoch and are already trying to figure out how to come back!

Arriving at Rannoch Station on a balmy late Sunday afternoon we were greeted by Scott, who proceeded to guide us to the Moor of Rannoch Hotel, informing us of the local village and residents on the way. We entered into a relaxing, comfortable and inviting atmosphere with a gorgeously Scottish inspired front lounge and sitting room. From there we were shown to our room, which was beautiful and had panoramic views of the moor. Scott feeds a herd of stag and deer and at about 5pm we were treated to a sight of 20+ deer and stag being fed only yards from our room window - it was quite a sight to see! Dinner followed with produce from local farms and others slightly further afield in Scotland. We stayed for 3 nights and each meal was a delight with Scott providing a heritage of all
