Assuming the command you are using to typeset your document has the --file-line-error flag set the error information in the Console should start with the file name and line number in that file where the error was detected (of course that's not necessarily where the error really is). The default built-in and latexmk based engine commands all have that flag set. I can't say for other engines.
