Kinloch Rannoch  Perthshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Kinloch Rannoch like this:

Kinloch-Rannoch, a village in Fortingall (quoad civilia) parish, NW Perthshire, on both banks of the Dubhag or Tummel, which here, 300 yards below its efflux from Loch Rannoch, is spanned by a bridge of four arches. It is 21 miles W by N of Pitlochry, 13 WSW of Struan station, 27 E by N of Kingshouse Inn, and 18 NW of Aberfeldy. ...

A picturesque and thriving little place, it has a neat new post office (Rannoch), with money order, savings' bank, and telegraph departments, 2 commodious hotels, a quoad sacra parish church (1829; 560 sittings), a Free church (1855; 200 sittings), an Episcopal church, All Saints (1864; 120 sittings), 6 shops, and a fair on the last Tuesday of October. In the centre of the village a Peterhead granite obelisk, 21 feet high, was erected in 1875 to the memory of the Gaelic sacred poet and evangelist, Dugald Buchanan (1716-68), who for the last sixteen years of his life was schoolmaster at Kinloch-Rannoch, where his house was demolished so late as 1881. Constituted by ecclesiastical authority in 1829, by civil authority in 1845, the quoad sacra parish of Kinloch-Rannoch is in the presbytery of Weem and synod of Perth and Stirling; its minister's stipend is £120, with a manse and glebe together worth £22, 10s. per annum.
