Strathyre, Lochearnhead and Balquhidder

Strathyre, Lochearnhead and Balquhidder

To the north of the Trossachs the landscape begins to assume truly Highland grandeur. The lochs are bigger, the glens are deeper and the mountains are higher. At the northern end of Loch Lubnaig is Strathyre, a popular centre with many forest and hill walks. A short distance further north is Loch Earn and the village of Lochearnhead; this loch is popular for watersports. North and east from here roads continue into the Highlands but leave the Loch Lomond National Park, passing into our Perthshire section.

There is another glen which offers no through route, a place of scenic splendour enriched by Loch Voil and Loch Doine. This is true Rob Roy country - the Braes of Balquhidder. At the head of the glen the Highlands assume their full stature, ringed by mighty Munros.
