Loch Leven Heritage Trail

Path information

  • The full circuit of the Loch Leven Heritage Trail is now open.
  • The route is round the loch's entire 21km circumference, it is mostly level and barrier-free, providing excellent access for walkers, cyclists and wheelchair users. 
  • The Loch is a National Nature Reserve with rare plants, insects and thousands of breeding and wintering birds. It is one of the most important areas for wildfowl in Europe.
  • Access at Vane Farm is by a flight of steps and at Findatie by a long slope (1:12).
  • The newly opened part of the trail, between Vane Farm and Kinross, follows a route away from the edge of the loch shore where there is a refuge for wildlife.  Users of the trail are therefore requested to stay on the path.
