  About your Area
 

Lochgoilhead Scottish Gaelic: Ceann Loch Goibhle) is a small village of some 300-400 people and is in the Scottish Highlands in Argyll, Scotland.

Situated at the head of Loch Goil, where the Goil river, which rises on nearby Ben Donich and Beinn Bheula, flows into the loch (Scotland word for Lake), it is surrounded by mountains rising as high as 3 000 feet and is part of the Arrochar Alps and Grampian Mountains. The village itself sits underneath the southside mountains of Glen Croe, as which Beinn an Lochain, Stob an Eas, Ben Donich and The Brack, stand. Lochgoilhead is situated as well in one of the most picturesque, remote, mountainous and wilderness parts of the truly highland area of the sothern highlands, putting a fine example of the Argyll Highlands. To a few years ago Lochgoilhead has been in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. The surrounding area is a mountainous, coastal and forestry landscape. The main employment spheres include tourism, agriculture (mainly sheep farming), and forestry. There are two outdoor education centres in the village. Tourism more than doubles the village population during the summer months. Two single-track roads both lead in and out of the village. It has a Post Office, village store, a medical and dental practice, two hotels, two pubs, an inn and a Scout camp.
Kilmarnock Academy First Years (Age 12-13) also visit the Loch ranging from May 9th, until May 16 of the same month.
