“A great 8 mile walk/cycle/ ride round a nature reserve”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

The heritage trail is a very well-maintained path that has been opened just a few years and will extend right round Loch Leven it is currently 8 miles (about 13 km).
It goes through varied woodland, and open country giving ever changing views of the Loch and surrounding hills. Loch Leven is an internationally renowned bird sanctuary with overwintering geese, osprey and the occasional sea eagle visiting. At one end of the trail is the Royal Society for Protection of Birds (RSPB) Vane Farm centre with hides, shop and refreshments.
There is no shortage of local refreshments and facilities, with a number very close by the trail. There are aslo ample benches as well as wildlife hides. The Kinross end has a park with playground as well as a bistro and is where the boat to visit Castle Island is taken (Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned there for some time but managed to escape).
As a family and with friends we visit often and it has become hugely popular since opening. Combined with a visit to the castle and some food en-route makes a great day out.
