There are three railway stations within reach of the club.

Blair Atholl (17 Miles) – This is the closest station. It is in the main line to Inverness from Perth and there is a frequent train service, although some of the long distance services do not stop here. There is no bus service from here direct to Kinloch Rannoch and No local taxi service. Unless you are being met, you are better off using Pitlochry Railway Station. It is, however, easier to park here if you are planning an excursion by rail.

Pitlochry (20 Miles) – This station is also on the main line to Inverness from Perth with a frequent service. There is an (infrequent) bus service to and from Kinloch Rannoch run by Elizabeth Yule Transport from the station approach. There are also taxis available close by.

Rannoch Station (16.5 Miles) – Rannoch Station is on the West Highland Line from Glasgow to Fort William.

Onward travel from this station is by way of the Rannoch Dial-a-bus service, a subsidised pick up service which can be booked to meet the train and will provide transport to the club.
