The beautiful countryside surrounding St Margarets, provides excellent walking and cycling opportunities straight from the property. The Loch Leven Heritage Trail runs for almost 12 miles around Loch Leven, linking natural, historic and cultural heritage with a stunning variety of scenery such as birch woods, pine tree strips as well as open farmland. There are several coffee shops and viewpoints en route to enhance the experience. The loch is also renowned for its excellent brown trout fishing and Loch Leven Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots was held prisoner from 1567 until her escape in 1568.
