Loch Earn is a stunningly beautiful fresh water Loch running East-West with a southern shore panorama of two magnificent Munroe Mountains Ben Vorlich and Stuc a Chroin. Sunrises and sunsets turn the loch a golden colour. The Loch is 7 miles long and up to a mile wide. It is 3 times deeper than the North Sea and is the only inland loch with a small tide. The west side at Lochearnhead is sheltered and calm and is ideal for boating pursuits and waterskiing.
Ospreys can frequently be seen fishing in the Loch.
