Lochearnhead is situated at the western end of Loch Earn, a gently lapping Highland loch dramatically edged by mountains at the western edge of Strathearn.
The village services the large numbers of visitors who come to the loch which is a popular centre for fishing and a wide range of watersports including sailing, water-skiing, wake-boarding and canoeing.
The remains of a crannog, an ancient loch dwelling, can be found at the south west corner of the Loch Earn. This highlights that there has been a settlement here for the last two thousand years.
Nearby Ben Vorlich, which sits on the shores of Loch Earn (not be confused with the Ben Vorlich near Loch Lomond) is a steep-sided, shapely hill of 3,232 ft (985 m) that offers great views to the north and west.
