Places to Visit


Lochleven Castle

Dating back to probably the 13th Century, Lochleven Castle is best known for having been a prison for Mary Queen of Scots for about a year in 1567/8 before her daring escape.  Prior to this, it is reputed as having been captured from the English in 1305 by none other than William Wallace (of Braveheart fame) and visited shortly afterwards by another Scottish historical hero, Robert the Bruce. Today, the castle is looked after by Historic Scotland who operate regular boat trips throughout the day to it from the Kinross Pier / Boathouse Bistro between April - October.       Visit website

RSPB Loch Leven

Formerly known as Vane Farm, the reserve is set on the southern shore of the loch and offers a great day out for families, nature lovers and birdwatchers alike. Climb the trail through the woodland to the top of Vane Hill for a spectacular view over the Kinross-shire hills and Loch Leven, or meander down to the wetland trail where strategically placed hides allow you to get really close to nature. The Visitor Centre and cafe currently mark one end of the Loch Leven Heritage Trail.         Visit website


Falkland Palace

Situated within the picturesque village of Fal;kland just 12 miles from Kinross, Falkland Palace is well worth a visit. Transformed from a castle into a Palace by King James IV and V, Falkland Palace was popular with the Stuart monarchs who came there to hunt wild boar and deer, practise falconry and play tennis. It was a particular favorite of Mary Queen of Scots. Although partly ruined, there is still plenty to see in the palace’s interior, such as the richly panelled Keeper’s quarters, the magnificent James V-era Chapel Royal, the Old Library and the recreated royal apartments. The gardens too are beautiful.         Visit website
