Located in Dunblane, Ranaich House is a specialist residential service offering care and support in a structured and therapeutic environment for up to 14 adults with learning disabilities and complex needs.

Ranaich House is a large period detached property, formerly a private Victorian villa with coach house, stables and mature woodland gardens. The service has good sized living areas, a dining room, and a well-stocked learning hub. There are two domestic 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 and picnic areas for relaxing or enjoying time with friends.

Individuals living at Ranaich House will progress through the care pathway, firstly living in main body of the house in an en-suite room, with access to all communal areas and catering facilities. When ready to move to less intensive support, residents can move to the self-contained three bedroom flat.

Moving on from here is to the Coach House; the original coach house and stables have been converted into a two bedroomed cottage flat in the grounds. 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, making this the ideal stepping stone towards moving on to independent living. There are no strict timescales for progression through their care pathway; everyone is different and has a personalised care and support pathway.

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. Our goal is to enable individuals to structure their time, build relationships and establish a balance between therapy, self-care, work and leisure, as appropriate to their individual needs.

  • En-suite bedrooms, which residents are supported to personalise
  • Good sized living and dining areas
  • Learning hub
  • Life skills kitchens
  • Spacious garden with seating and picnic areas

  • Cafés and restaurants
