Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Lochearnhead is in Central Scotland. In fact Loch Earn is so central within Scotland that it makes an idyllic base for touring. The main roads A84 and A85 will take you in all directions whether you prefer to stick close to the forests, mountains and lochs or to visit historic cities and towns with shops. The Trossachs, Perthshire, Stirlingshire, Highlands are all pinned together at Loch Earn on the edge of The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. The cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow are equidistant at 58 miles away. Perth City is 40 miles, Stirling, 30 miles and it takes 45 minutes to reach Loch Lomond or the ski centre at Glencoe. Oban is a pretty seaside town on the west coast yet it is only 55 miles away and takes less than 90 minutes to reach by car. Many guests leave early and catch the 10.30 ferry from Oban to Mull and Tobermorray. Stirling train station offers an excellent option to park the car all day for a modest sum (£3.50). Then you can hop on a train to the centre of Edinburgh or Glasgow and stroll around. Scotland offers a vast choice of things to see and do. From Lochearnhead you can discover lovely places to eat and drink, history, castles, fishing, feats of engineering, wildlife, land rover wildlife safaris, golf, whisky distilleries, water sports and other outdoor sports, Munro's, antiques, forest walks and National Cycle route 7 on the disbanded railway line. There are too many things to list though more information is available from The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park of Scotland and Queen Elizabeth 11 Forest Park as well as The Loch Earn Tourism Initiative group website of events.
