This vast and beautiful forest lies on the southern shores of Loch Rannoch and forms part of the Tay Forest Park.
There are two waymarked walks through a wide range of trees including remnants of the ancient Caledonian Forest that once covered much of Scotland. Both the Carie and Kilvrecht walks follow short routes through oak and Norway spruce, with the possibility of catching a glimpse of red squirrels feasting on the large spruce cones. For those wishing a longer route, the Allt Na Boigar Walk (5 miles) is a superb choice as it follows the steep sided burn through native broadleaved woodland.
A short distance west of Rannoch Forest lies the Black Wood of Rannoch, a Caledonian Forest Reserve. This special place is rich in native tree species and supports a wealth of plants, insects, birds and animals.
