There is an outside terrace at the front of the hotel and ample private car parking on the loch-side, where there are picnic tables for alfresco F&B activities.

The picturesque village of Lochearnhead sits on the junction point between the A85 and A84 roads, at the West end of beautiful Loch Earn, ensuring excellent volume of passing traffic, due to it being on one of the main thoroughfares to Oban and the North West from the East and Central Scotland. In addition, there are excellent road links to Glasgow, Perth, Stirling and Edinburgh which are in convenient driving distance. West Loch Earn, and Lochearnhead, are also renowned for water sports, from which the Hotel is able to benefit.
