All Saints Episcopal Church is located on the north side of Kinloch Rannoch's main square and adjacent to the Dunalastair Hotel. There are actually two churches in the village, the other being the Church of Scotland's Old Church of Rannoch off the minor road to Aberfeldy.
The congregation of All Saints Kinloch Rannoch is made up of members who were born into the Scottish Episcopal Church and others living locally who have discovered that north of the border the Scottish Episcopal Church is the sister of the Church of England within the Anglican family.
In the holiday seasons, All Saints provides a spiritual home for Anglicans from all parts of the globe visiting Scotland. The Church is open daily to visitors.
Services, usually Family Communion, are held at 10.30 a.m. every Sunday from the end of April to the end of October and on the first Sunday in the month from November to April. The church also has services at Christmas and Easter and on some other occasions as set out on the church notice board. Visitors are warmly welcomed and refreshments are usually available at the end of the services.
Remarkably, the church does not have a resident clergyman but relies on visiting clergy take services while staying in the church's holiday cottage at the foot of nearby Schiehallion. This arrangement can cause problems meeting requests from people from outwith the area to be married in the church: in effect those wishing to get married need to provide their own clergyman prepared to officiate.
All Saints Episcopal Church was built in the 1860s by General Macdonald of Dalchosnie. General Macdonald's mausoleum is attached to the church.
The interior of All Saints does full justice to the imposing exterior. The dark wood fixtures and fittings are offset well by the light decor and the overall impression is of space and height.
The quality of the light in the church is helped greatly by some very attractive stained glass. Especially striking are the east window (see picture, left), and the rose window in the west gable, both of which have been recently restored.
