Ranaich House is a specialist residential service with nursing, supporting adults with learning disabilities and complex needs, including those with mental health or physical health needs. We provide specialist nursing care and support that is tailored to individual needs, promoting independence and community integration.

Ranaich House is a large period detached property, formerly a private Victorian villa with coach house, stables and mature woodland gardens. The main house has 12 en-suite bedrooms, a number of good sized living areas, dining room, a gym and sensory room, as well as two life skills kitchens, where individuals can plan menus and prepare their own drinks, snacks and meals. Externally there is a spacious and private garden which hosts seating areas, a greenhouse and herb garden and plenty of space for playing sports and games.

Within the grounds at Ranaich House we have the Coach House which is a two bedroomed cottage. The Coach House has staff support at all times and offers residents the opportunity to experience more independence, whilst living in a safe environment. It has its own front door and enclosed, private gardens.

Ranaich House is located in a beautiful area in Dunblane, with stunning scenery of mountain views. The local area has an abundance of amenities and the residents are supported to access these.

For those wanting to venture a little further, Stirling and Falkirk are a short drive away. The activity coordinator at Ranaich House is focussed on ensuring that residents can be part of their local community and have access to education, employment and other day opportunities to meet their needs.
