At the heart of Kinross-shire is Loch Leven - Scotland's largest lowland freshwater loch and one of the most important sites for waterfowl in Britain. This National Nature Reserve provides a haven for wildlife and attracts the largest concentration of ducks found anywhere in the UK with many thousands of migratory ducks, geese and swans every autumn and winter.

The trail is a unique experience linking natural, historic and cultural heritage around Loch Leven. It gives access to the most attractive parts of Loch Leven allowing you to experience its remarkable history, nature and beauty first hand.

Spring around the loch means:

You can listen to birdsong to your heart's content and spot great crested grebe, swallows and sand martins. Catkins on willow, hazel trees and early spring flowers add a wash of colour to the Trail.
