Current projects at RCT

Here is an overview of the work we are currently undertaking to help improve quality of life in our community.

Community Hub

Hopefully sometime in 2024 we will have a functional Community Hub, the most popular item on our original community survey back in 2016.

It is early days in the acquisition process, but with strong local support we are hopeful of giving Rannoch a new social heart, providing food, drink, leisure and business space for locals and visitors.

Affordable Housing

Rannoch Community Trust (RCT) and the Dunalastair Estate have been working in partnership over the last couple of years to look at the potential for developing a site in Kinloch Rannoch for residential housing including houses for affordable rent and sale.

We are proposing to develop part of the field to build 12 community owned houses for affordable rent and low-cost home ownership (LCHO) with a further 7 houses being built for Dunalastair Estate for private rent or open market sale.

Community-Led Care Project - Update

We are working with consultants, SKS Scotland, to explore care-service delivery models for Rannoch & Tummel. This work is funded by the Perth and Kinross Council Community Led Local Development Fund (CLLD).

Living in Rannoch and Tummel, we don’t have good access to care at home services. The Rannoch Community-Led Care Project is looking at innovative ways to meet our local care needs. We have a great opportunity to create something that will work for our community and enhance the lives of our family, friends and neighbours.

The project is running from January 2024 to March 2025. By the end of it, we expect to have a plan for the next steps of a solution, with the agreement and commitment of the Health and Social Care Partnership.

Progress Report:

SKS are holding events on Tuesday 18th June to give a short summary of the recent community survey results and explain the model for care-delivery which they are working on.

When and where:

>> Coffee Morning at Kinloch Rannoch Village Hall: Tuesday 18th June, 10 to 11am
All welcome! Everyone is encouraged to attend and find out more about what progress has been made. Your contribution and feedback is valuable to us.

>> Focus Group at Kinloch Rannoch Village Hall: Tuesday 18th June, 11 to 12noon
This session is for everyone who has volunteered (or wants to volunteer) to help the project and those who are interested in paid employment in delivery of the services we will need in the future.

>> Drop-In Event at Kinloch Rannoch Village Hall: Tuesday 18th June, 6-7pm
This session is for everyone who is unable to attend the daytime sessions. We will be available to chat through the progress we’ve made and opportunities for volunteers and paid employment in the future.

By working together, we can create a strong support system that enables people to stay at home, if it is their wish to do so. We firmly believe that if we don’t take on this responsibility, our community will continue to receive insufficient support.

Together, lets create a supportive network that ensures everyone can live gracefully in the place they call home.

Community Care Coordinator

Community Care Coordinator support is a local point of contact for people seeking information and support with a variety of issues in the Rannoch community. Our coordinator, Veronica Grosset, can signpost people to local resources and can support people to access services that best meet their individual needs. The service commenced on 18th February 2020. 

For further information please contact the service on

All enquiries will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
