Perth & Kinross | Town |


The old staging post and county town of Kinross-shire spreads across flat ground a short distance from the watery expanse of Loch Leven, separated from the loch by the grounds of Kinross House. The settlement's focal point around a reddish clock tower (part of the former town hall) has benefited from a recent spruce up, but wildfowl far outnumber the human population and most visitors will be heading for the water's edge. We've listed the local sights below: the highlight must be the island stronghold of Lochleven Castle, where Mary, Queen of Scots was imprisoned for a year from June 1567. Boats to the island depart from the jetty in Kirkgate Park.
