Loch Leven National Nature Reserve features a large expanse of open water which is the ideal home for a variety of birds.
There are a number of viewing hides and woodland trails. See the quiet persistence of tufted duck and teal dabbling for food, or marvel at the awe-inspiring sight of huge flocks of wintering wildfowl. In summer, ospreys patrol the loch in search of a fish supper, whilst on the marshy edges your nose might be sensitive enough to lead you to the sweetly scented holy grass, an ancient form of incense.
There is an all-abilities Loch Leven Heritage Trail which covers 12 km (8 miles) of the loch shore from Kinross to the Loch Leven RSPB Visitor Centre, which has a shop, tearoom, bird hides and nature trail.
