The town sits beside Loch Leven, the largest loch of the Scottish Lowlands. Declared a nature reserve in 1964, the loch attracts around  20,000 pink-footed geese every autumn. Sitting peacefully on an islet within the loch itself is the enchanting Lochleven Castle. Between April and September you can take the small ferry to the castle which gained infamy when it acted as a prison to Mary Queen of Scots in 1567. Her dramatic escape by boat is one of Scotland's most romantic tales.

Enjoy all or parts of the 16 mile Loch Leven Heritage Trail on the north and east shores of Loch Leven. Nearby, the grassy banks of Kirkgate Park sit on the shores of the loch where there is a great play area for the kids or why not tee-off on one of the golf courses or pop into one of the lovely Hotels or cafes where you can enjoy a bite to eat.  There's also a convenience store on the High Street and a number of small shops and banks nearby.
