The Old Chapel Corrour Loch Ossian is a unique and highly unusual highland holiday house located in the rambling Victorian gardens of Corrour Lodge.
Located on the shores of Loch Ossian, one of the most inaccessible and beautiful parts of Scotland. Set high on Rannoch Moor, this is a superb base for large groups to explore this remote Highland wilderness.
Interior Designed by Suzy Hoodless
The Old Chapel was refurbished by famous interior designer Suzy Hoodless with a 1950’s Scandinavian ski cabin theme. The highly unusual décor features walls and ceiling clad with Victorian pine salvaged from the roof of St. Pancreas and papered with copies of The Scotsman dating from the 1950’s.
The Chapel has an Aga cooker and oven as well as a cosy wood burning stove and underfloor heating. There is also payphone & television with TV / DVD close by in Community Centre.
It’s a wild and remote location amongst wonderful scenery. Access is (11 miles) up a private track road or via the train station at Corrour (4 miles) on the West Highland line (Sleepers from London also stop). It’s an ideal retreat for groups looking for an unusual and intimate setting.
A circular walk or bike ride around Loch Ossian (11 km). Look out for the Lodge, This controversial home to the Corrour Estate owners has divided aesthetic opinion. It’s an innovative twist on the traditional Scottish shooting lodge; the glass towers are truly remarkable.
The area is a haven for wildlife with regular sightings of deer, pine martin, otters, red squirrels, golden eagles, capercaillie, ptarmigan, grouse, innumerable insect species and plant life. Their wells worth getting up early in the morning to watch the deer or even try your luck at otter spotting!
Hire a canoe and go for a paddle or try fishing. The Loch has trout and pike, both of which can be caught practically from the Chapel door and a boat can also be hired (permits required).
Go ponytrekking with the Corrour Icelandic Horses, hire a bike and explore or even try clay shooting.
This is superb walking country with plenty of low and high-level routes to choose from, including some remote Munros and Corbetts. Highlights include Leum Uillem or William’s Hill (909m, 6-8 hours).
The circuit of this fine horseshoe offers superb views across Rannoch Moor to the Glencoe peaks, Mamores and mighty Ben Nevis. A shorter and easier route with another fine outlook is the easy Munro, Beinn a Lap, (height 935m, 4-5 hours).
The Old Chapel Corrour at Loch Ossian is a unique holiday house in a wonderful setting high on Rannoch Moor in a remote but stunning countryside in the Scottish Highlands.
