The Loch Leven Heritage Trail has become my new favourite training route for a Sunday morning cycle. The paths are really good, not totally flat but no need for a mountain bike either. The distance is also really good for training and can easily be completed in about 60 minutes at a good pace.

Having walked and cycled the Heritage Trail on many occasions it still amazes me that we have been very lucky to have such a trail beside our town. There are many visitors to this area during the year just for the trail and the Boathouse Restaurant and Coffee shack are a great place to take your break when walking or... More

Such a beautiful peaceful walk, seen lots of wildlife and the most amazing views. I would like to know a little more about the abandoned Orwell Church ruined which are along the way but can't seem to find anything as yet!

we had planned to walk from the Boathouse to Loh Leven's Larder which should take just per an hour but we went down the Sunnypark entrance via Mary's gate and walked along to the view point. By this point we'd walked more than 10,000 steps and had only caught a glimpse of the Loch, so I felt a bit cheated!... More

We took the bus to Kinross Park and Ride then walked from there to the start of the Heritage Trail. We hadn't planned to complete the whole circuit but it is easy walking, the scenery is gorgeous and we were blethering. Once we had calculated we had passed the point of no return, it occurred to us that we might... More

There are so many choices of where to begin your walk/cycle round the loch. My favourite starting place is to go clockwise from Kirkgate Park and stop 2/3 of the way round for an amazing, great value brunch at the Findatie cafe. Young families might prefer to walk round to Burleigh Sands and back so the children can potter about... More

This trail wanders round the loch with plenty of access places so you can do the whole trail or just part of it. there are hides for bird watching.

The Loch Leven trail offers easy access from a variety of locations around Loch Leven for able and less mobile folks. You can potter around little shore areas for 20 minutes or walk or bike around the whole 13 miles. Fantastic addition to our area!

We loved our cycle around here. Great to get a long off road track with some lovely views, places of interest and a few cafes!

About 13 miles of easy walking. Most is probably suitable for all access (wheelchairs etc) but there are a few possible obstacle eg the zigzag bends on a small hill near the southeast end.
