Just across the railway line from Rannoch Station, bordered by the path across Rannoch Moor, there's a wee loch, followed by the beginning of Loch Laidon. Amazing wilderness all around, and a small family-friendly beach at the top of the loch. Ther have sometimes been different groups there at the same time, keeping themselves to themselves. Quite deserted much of the time, but you can probably be seen from the path. Lovely, cold, peaty water.

    I was blessed with a gorgeous sunny day and no midges... it's very shallow at the beach end so take the path round a bit further to the boat-spit. It's a very easy get-in point and doesn't take long to get deep.

    It takes 10-15 minutes to walk there from Rannoch Station/Moor of Rannoch Hotel.

    Amazingly peaceful and secluded. The water was lovely.

    Just very remote! Make sure someone knows you're going in there!
