The village has no dedicated out-of-hours GP after the local family doctor retired and his replacement opted out of out-of-hours responsibility.
Viscount Monckton is advertising for GPs to provide cover for less than the health board's estimate of £557,000 a year. NHS Tayside will then have a legal duty to consider any tender put together, he said.
‘We are expecting it to be no more than a third of that figure, and possibly even less than that,' he said.
A spokesman for NHS Tayside said a range of out-hours care was available to the village, including an out-of-hours GP with driver and paramedics based at the Aberfeldy Community Hospital. But the residents think this is not close enough.
Viscount Monckton, a former adviser to Margaret Thatcher, said Kinloch Rannoch's 589 residents had been left ‘with less cover than a small African village'.
