The Loch Leven Heritage Trail is a unique waterside route which runs for almost 8 miles around the north and east shores of Loch Leven, from the Pier, Kinross to the RSPB reserve at Vane Farm, linking natural, historic and cultural heritage sites. The loch is also renowned for its excellent brown trout fishing and for Loch Leven Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots was held prisoner from 1567 until her escape in 1568. The beautiful countryside surrounding it provides further walking, cycling and riding opportunities.
