Lochearnhead is a village on the A84 road at the western end of Loch Earn in Perthshire, Scotland. There are many things to see and do in the area, with many of the attractions focusing on the beautiful unspoilt landscape and the rich history.
Edinample Castle, a local attraction, has several legends attached to it including the well known 'Black' Duncan Campbell tale, a man known for his fury who had asked the architect to build the castle with a parapet, but on discovering that there was not one threw the architect off the roof to his death.
His ghost is said to haunt the castle, wandering around the roof where the parapet should have been. The village has become a centre of water sports including water skiing, kayaking, canoeing, dinghy sailing and scuba diving. There are a number of walks to be enjoyed in the area, including the Glen Ogle track, which can be walked as a circular route, starting on the Lochearnhead stretch then going along the Western side of Glen Ogle on the old high level railway, and returning down the floor of the glen.
