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!
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.
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.
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.
