There is  a bus service from Pitlochry to Rannoch station  that gives access to Schiehallion (although you may need to hitch a lift to the start of the hill) and also a northern approach to the Glen Lyon hills.

However it is possible to climb Schiehallion by its west ridge – starting from near West Tempar, and this means a shorter walk from Kinloch Rannoch . the route up Schiehallion is steep but never difficult .

Buses leave Pitlochry at 8.52 and arrive at Kinloch Rannoch at 9.35 . On Saturdays return buses leave Kinloch Rannoch at 15.35 and 17.45; and on weekdays  the return bus from Kinloch Rannoch is at 16.45

 

 

 

 

Meall Buidhe may also be reached from this direction and gives a  longer and more  interesting walk than from the south

Timetable for buses to Kinloch Rannoch here and from Kinloch Rannoch to Rannoch station here

These are operated by the same company so the buses  connect up
