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

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 will look 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 will run from January to September 2024. 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.

We will be running drop-in events on 27th and 28th March and we’ll asking community members to complete a short survey.  More details to follow!

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 rannochcoordinator@gmail.com

All enquiries will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
