Buchanan is remembered because of the Monument erected in The Square at Kinloch Rannoch and the first Church built at the Braes as a result of his evangelism. The flagstones on the chancel floor in the church are from one of the early churches.
Rev. Archibald Eneas Robertson (A.E. Robertson 1870 - 1958) was a renowned Munro-bagger. He was born in Helensburgh, the son of a prosperous merchant. He began climbing Munros in 1889, two years before the list of Scottish mountains over 3000 feet (914m) had been published by its creator Sir Hugh Munro (1856 - 1919). Robertson had climbed 45 Munros by the time he joined the Scottish Mountaineering Club in 1893. He accumulated further conquests gradually through the succeeding years until, in 1898 and 1899, he undertook a determined campaign which resulted in him reaching the top of a further 147 Munros. This campaign made extensive use of both the developing rail system and his trusty bicycle, and was carefully planned to link the peaks in the most efficient manner, without unnecessary climbing. Although Archibald completed the Munros without the aid of a motor car, he made extensive use of the developing rail system and many other forms of transport as well, such as steamer, rowing boat pony and trap, mail cart, stage coach, and in particular, the bicycle. He was never without a roof over his head at the end of a day in the hills, and in an era when the glens were more populated, would often overnight at gamekeeper’s or shepherd’s cottages during his longer treks.
In September 1901, Robertson climbed Meall Dearg (Glen Coe) and became the first to complete every Munro. He served as the parish minister at Braes of Rannoch (1907-20).
He later developed a keen interest in photography and went on to serve as President of the Scottish Mountaineering Club (1930-32) and as Chairman of the Scottish Rights of Way Society.
