Loch Head is a small hamlet around a crossroads. The easiest way to get there is to take the Elrig turn off the A747 1 mile W of Port William. This is a sharp turn onto a narrow road. Continue through Elrig and you will glimpse a loch on your R. This is Loch Elrig. As you reach the crossroads the cairn is on the R opposite the first house in Loch Head. Parking is available if you turn right at the crossroads, travel around 100 m to a large car park on the L for Loch Elrig.
The cairn is around 10m across by 1.5m high. There are some scattered stones remaining in the circle.
Carlin Stone is 500m N of the cairn and can be accessed from your current car park.
Loch Head cairn is recorded as Canmore ID 62701 (go to Links).
