Looking down on Loch Leven with the trees changing colour

Loch Leven & Kinlochleven

The 20 mile circular drive on the B863 around Loch Leven is very scenic. At the east end of the loch is Kinlochleven, a village that was nearly given the name Aluminiumville. The village was developed around the start of the twentieth century as a means of producing aluminium. The industry has closed down and the building now houses the Ice Factor which claims to have the largest ice climbing wall in the world.

There are easy walks to Grey Mares Tail and to the Blackwater reservoir or if you feel more energetic you can climb in the Mamores.
