Loch Leven he former county town of Kinross stands on the shores of Loch Leven. The steeple standing by the Town House finds itself in its rather odd position owning to the 18th century steeple committees of Kinross.
When a church was designed in 1742 without a steeple, a committee was formed to raise money to have a steeple added to the church. The money was raised but the church was moved, leaving the steeple stranded!

istorians and romantics should not miss Loch Leven Castle - reached by a tiny ferry (April-September) - it was from this island stronghold that Mary Queen Kinross House of Scots escaped in 1568. The loch itself (the largest in the Scottish Lowlands), is famed for its abundant birdlife and trout fishing. It is also the focal point of this attractive rural area.
Close by, visit the gardens of stately Kinross House or enjoy the family fun amenities of Kirkgate Park, overlooking the loch. For an even closer view of the loch's exceptional birdlife, visit the RSPB's Vane Farm Nature Reserve.

The Well hen step back into the past again by seeing The Well in Scotlandwell, the poet Michael Bruce's Cottage at Kinnesswood and Burleigh Castle near Burliegh Milnathort. Other historic sites abound, such as the Toll Booth which dates from the 17th century.
Do not miss the Heart of Scotland Visitor Centre which will introduce you to the whole area and offer local advice on how best to make the most of it. You will find a wide choice of accommodation in both Kinross and in the many surrounding villages.

ith its excellent road links, Kinross is ideally placed for exploring further afield. All of fascinating Fife - including St Andrews and the pretty East Neuk fishing villages - are on your doorstep and Edinburgh is just thirty minutes away.
The proximity of larger towns and cities means that it is easy to reach evening entertainments of all types but do not overlook the regular entertainments laid on by hotels, inns and restaurants in the Kinross area itself. You will be made welcome.
