Glen Ogle Trail, Lochearnhead

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This waymarked trail takes the old railway line out of Lochearnhead to head towards the pass to Killin. Before the top a rougher path along an old military road is followed with good views of Loch Earn in front and ever changing colourful landscape around.


Excellent path on cycle track, one steep section climbing up to it. The return route is very boggy, particularly where the path was damaged in mudslides.

Public Transport

Start from the car park just off the A85 opposite the Watersports Centre in Lochearnhead. There are toilets and an information board here. Walk along the A85 back towards the main part of Lochearnhead, passing the village hall on the right, and crossing the bottom of the Ogle Burn on a footbridge. At the junction with the A84 cross the road and head right soon passing under the site of the old railway line to St Fillans. Soon after turn left up a track signed for a Scout Station, there is also a sign for the Glen Ogle Trail. Immediately branch to the right on a small path which heads steeply uphill, passing through a kissing gate early on.
