Lochearnhead village lies at the western end of Loch Earn. It began as a junction between the main north-south road from Callander to Killin and the road along Loch Earn from Perth. In 1761 the military road passing through from Stirling to Fort William was completed and this improved communication for the village. In 1800 a post office opened in the village and in 1870 the Callander to Oban railway arrived.
It was the coming of the railways that had the greatest effect on the village. In 1904 the railway was extended along Loch Earn to St. Fillans and Crieff, making Lochearnhead an easy place to visit. With the rise in Scottish tourism in Victorian times, the village became a popular destination from which tourists could enjoy the tranquillity of Loch Earn.
