Places to Visit

Kinross (0 mi)

Historic Kinross lies on the shore of Loch Leven and is surrounded by hills. Loch Leven is a sparkling jewel surrounded by rolling hills and fertile farmland. It brims with natural beauty, wildlife and history. The loch is a National Nature Reserve with a remarkable range of wildlife, including tens of thousands of migrating geese. Loch Leven has been home for monks, the scene of sieges and the setting for a queen's escape. It has welcomed generations of anglers and hosted huge curling tournaments.

Loch Leven Heritage Trail (0.25 mi)

The Loch Leven Heritage Trail takes you to some of the most attractive parts of the loch. A well signposted traffic free path, mostly level and barrier free. It is suitable for walkers, cyclists and wheelchair users. Free to use mobility scooters are available at the pier and Loch Levens Larder. In 2014 the trail will be open fully around the loch, a distance of approximately 12 miles. There is also a circular bus route on Sundays, one hop on hop off ticket takes you between places of interest, cafes and restaurants.

Kinross Golf Course (1 mi)

Kinross and Milnathort both have golf courses (where we can arrange tee times for you), but don't forget a visit to world famous St. Andrews (29 miles), known as the home of golf, or the world-class course at Gleneagles, Auchterarder (18 miles).

Edinburgh (27 mi)

For shopping: You can't beat the cosmopolitan, yet distinctly Scottish city of Edinburgh (27 miles); for more traditional wares, visit the bustling tourist town of Callander (39 miles). For History: You can visit the wonderful old town of Edinburgh (27 miles); Scotland's former capital city of Perth (17 miles); the final resting place of Robert the Bruce in Dunfermline (13 miles); or historic Auchterarder (18 miles).

Walking, climbing, fishing and cycling

Attempt to walk round Loch Leven, take a gentle woodland stroll from Rumbling Bridge to the Devil's Mill, or an energetic climb up Dollar Glen to Castle Campbell. There are also lots of opportunities for cycling, fishing and climbing.

Sight-seeing and family days out

Well worth a visit are the Falkirk Wheel, Falkland Palace, Stirling Castle and the Old Town Jail, or the Secret Bunker (Crail). Walk on the wild side at Blair Drummond Safari Park (Callender) and Deep Sea World at North Queensferry. Or tour the East Neuk fishing villages and quaint Culross.

Whisky

Perthshire has both the smallest and oldest distilleries in Scotland. The trail includes the distilleries in Aberfeldy and Pitlochry, but perhaps one of the best in the area is the Famous Grouse Experience at Crieff, where you can see how The Famous Grouse blends are made, and try the tasting tray of five different ages and blends.
