Brimming with wildlife and history, there is so much to explore at Loch Leven National Nature Reserve. From late summer until spring, thousands of wildfowl from many different countries use it for short and long-term stopovers, meaning Loch Leven is a fascinating place to visit at any time of year.
However, it’s not just the birds that make this such a special place. It also boasts a rich mix of wet grasslands, raised bog, willow and reed beds, with an amazing range of plants and some excellent viewing opportunities.
The Loch Leven Heritage Trail extends the whole way around the loch – a 13 mile, traffic-free route suitable for walkers of all abilities, cyclists, and for wheelchair and motorised scooter users. There are a number of viewing hides and access points along the trail, as well as an RSPB visitor centre on the south side of the loch. More information is also available at The Boathouse Bistro at Kinross Pier.
