Mini guide to Kinross

     

Originally a centre for wool weaving and a gateway to the Highlands, Kinross is located to the north of Edinburgh in between Dunfermline and Perth. The town is famed for the beautiful Loch Leven and its islands and nearby Loch Leven Castle and Kinross House are also big attractions here, along with the superb trout fishing.

The 17th century Italian Renaissance style Kinross House is the most outstanding building in Kinross. During the summer months visitors can explore the beautiful gardens that stretch all the way to the water's edge of Loch Leven, where Loch Leven Castle also resides. The castle was used to imprison Mary Queen of Scots in 1567.

Loch Leven has seven islands, which have been fortified since the 5th century. St Serfs Island is the largest and has a ruined 9th century priory as its attraction, while Castle Island boasts an impressive tower that is accessible by ferry. Other attractions include the 17th century Tollbooth and Kinross Sunday Market, Scotland's largest indoor Sunday market.

Loch Leven is well known in the angling world and is loaded with trout, while the Vane Farm Nature Reserve has a wonderful collection of birdlife. Kinross has two quality golf courses and family fun can be had at Kirkgate Park, while there is also a multitude of hotels, pubs, inns and restaurants.

The whole of Kinrossshire is idyllic and perfect for hiking, walking, cycling, fishing as well as relaxing, while Edinburgh, Perth, Stirling and Dunfermline are all within easy driving distance if you have a car.
