The main economic activities in the area of Kinloch Rannoch are tourism, forestry and farming. Local tourist activities include rafting, cycling and trekking. Near the village is a hill reputed to resemble the head, shoulders, and torso of a man. It has been given the name of “The Sleeping Giant”. Local myth says that the giant will wake up only when he hears the sounds of his master’s flute. It also has a waterfall known as Fall of Allt Mor and there is a walkway to the hill. The village of Kinloch Rannoch is a good place from which to start exploring the Clan Trail. A series of interesting story boards have been placed at accessible points around the loch shore that tell the fascinating tales of clans prominent in the district before the 19th and 20th centuries. There is also a Crannog (artificial island) near the far west of the loch which was used in the 18th century as a base for outlawed members of the MacGregor Clan.
