The RSPB Visitor Centre has great views of the loch, and there are viewing hides to visit and woodland trails to follow. There are good facilities here too, including baby changing places, a shop and cafe. Ospreys nest by the loch to fish during the summer, while up to 20,000 pink-footed geese fly in from Iceland come autumn. See our website for updates on seasonal visitors.

RSPB Loch Leven

Brimming with wildlife and history, from one of Mary Queen of Scot’s prisons, to thousands of wildfowl, it is a fascinating place to visit at any time of year. There is a Loch Leven Heritage Trail along a well-made, level path suitable for all-terrain buggies. The circuit goes right round the Loch Leven National Nature Reserve along the loch side and through varied woods and marshland. There are several opportunities for café stops along the 13-mile route. The walk starts at the jetty and passes a viewing area with seats overlooking Loch Leven Castle out on Castle Island. Boat trips run in the summer from Kinross Pier. www.walkhighlands.co.uk/perthshire/loch-leven.shtml
