Lochearnhead

Located in the beautiful Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, Lochearnhead Railway Station, originally built in the 1900s by the Caledonian Railway Company, is now owned by Hertfordshire Scouts and has been full restored & converted to provide an adventurous activities base in the Scottish Highlands.

Available all year round and able to cater for up to 90 people, the Station makes for an ideal base for groups wanting to plan & organise their own activities, whether for a weekend or longer. Read here about Lochearnhead Station Development Plan

About Lochearnhead

Who can use it?

Anyone. The area surrounding Lochearnhead can provide both an introduction to the hills for beginners and a serious challenge to the experienced walker, which makes Lochearnhead an ideal location for activities for all ages.

What do I find there?

Within easy reach of the Station there are a great many hills and mountains that provide opportunities for both novice hill walkers and experienced mountaineers of all ages.

Alternatively, the views over Loch Earn give a tantalising glimpse of the water based activities available. On the various lochs & rivers in the local area, activities include sailing, canoeing & kayaking, white-water rafting and fishing, which are all possible.

For those wanting to get out on two wheels, there is a Sustrans national cycle route running from Calendar all the way through to Killin. The route offers a variety of terrain & gradients from the forest at Strathyre, to the climb up Glen Ogle along the old railway line, all the time giving you superb views & thrills.

And for those wanting to do some rock climbing, why not try out the crags at Benny Beg near Crieff.

Accommodation

The main station building houses the kitchen, dining area, sun lounge, office and toilet/shower facilities. The sleeping accommodation is in log cabins located in the grounds of the 4.5 acres’ site. The cabins vary in size from 6-12 persons, all with alpine style bunks, lobby area & space for storing gear. There is also a separate shower and toilet block with disabled facilities and a good sized drying room to cater for the Scottish weather.
