Loch Beanie also known as Loch Schchernich, is a small shallow freshwater loch that is located in Glen Shee in Perth and Kinross, Scotland.


At the centre of the island, roughly 100 metres from the southern shore is a Crannog that is constructed of boulders and small stones. Less than a third of the surface of the island is visible above water.

A building perhaps once existed on the loch. In a map by Timothy Pont circa 1600, a mansion is depicted on the island, with the annotation: Loch Sesatut, sumtyms ye dwelling of ye chief man of Glenshy and Strathardle. In a map by Robert Gordon of Straloch circa 1636–1648, the building is noted as 'L. Sesatur old chief dwelling of Glens(hie). By 1747, all knowledge of the island had been forgotten.
