Loch Rannoch is a large freshwater loch in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. There is a small village, Kinloch Rannoch at the east end of the loch, and at the opposite end there is a crannog, a man-made island with a folly on it. It was used by members of the MacGregor Clan, who had been outlawed, in the 18th century.
History of Kinloch Rannoch
The early history of the village of Kinloch Rannoch is not a proud one, as it was mainly home to a few poverty-stricken people who survived by stealing. It was not until 1745, at the end of the Jacobite Rebellion that the hamlet began to grow when James Small, who had been a soldier in the Rebellion, encouraged discharged soldiers and crofters who had lost their home and livelihoods to settle there. At first they did not fare very well as their cattle and arms were stolen and hidden, and local people were wary of them.
By 1754 the stealing had stopped and the former soldiers could finally concentrate on building roads, shops and schools. The craftsmen Small employed from outside the village taught the inhabitants their trades.
Now Kinloch Rannoch and Loch Rannoch display none of their rather colourful past, but are centres of tourism.
