There are many ways to explore the rich natural and cultural heritage of Loch Leven.
At 13miles (21km) the Loch Leven Heritage Trail extends the whole way around the loch - a traffic free route you can walk, run, bike or ride along the whole length. Level and barrier-free for most of its length, the Trail is suitable for walkers of all ages and abilities, for cyclists, for wheelchair and motorised scooter users. (Please note from the RSPB visitor centre and car park you access the trail via a tunnel under the road with steps). If you would prefer a shorter walk then just explore part of the trail on one of these walks .
If you wish to take a canoe or kayak on to the loch then please consult our waterborne access guidance before visiting.
There are a number of viewing hides where you can quietly watch for birds or just enjoy the views. And to keep the kids entertained why not take a spotters page or activity sheet with you ? Or complete them when you get home.
The RSPB visitor centre at the south side of Loch Leven has good views of the loch, viewing hides and woodland trails. There are good facilities here too including toilets, a shop and cafe. If you want more information about the Reserve, staff at the visitor centre will be happy to help.
The Boathouse Bistro at Kinross Pier also has information for visitors including local accommodation, reserve and the heritage trail leaflets. Facilities here include a café and toilets as well as cycle hire and free mobility scooters.
