Loch Leven National Nature Reserve

Nature Centres & Reserves
Kinross Shire

A huge expanse of open water, Loch Leven is home to more breeding ducks than anywhere else in inland Europe. Watch 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.
