Nature and Culture
Loch Leven is a vast expanse of shallow freshwater, which makes it a great place for dabbling and diving ducks to search for food. There's plenty of fringing shoreline vegetation, and several large islands making Loch Leven a duck heaven.
The Loch is more than just a haven for ducks. From late summer right through to spring huge flocks of other wildfowl gather here. In summer there's a good chance of spotting osprey fishing.
Lulled by the gently moving surface of the water, it's hard to believe Loch Leven has been the site of some angry historical encounters.
Managed by SNH and RSPB, Loch Leven is a wild but accessible place. Home to thousands of breeding and wintering birds.
Sculpted by ice, Loch Leven provides a sanctuary throughout the year for thousands of birds.
The grasslands, bogs and pastures along the shore of Loch Leven are rich in wildlife.
Discovery Areas and tracks ensure wildlife and people benefit.
