Top Five South Perthshire Adventures
Paddle on Loch Leven
Loch Leven is the largest lowland loch in Scotland, a huge expanse of water. A hugely important location for birds, it has a paddle able area for you to enjoy. As well as appreciating it from the water there is a 13 mile long trail which winds its way around the loch. Suitable for cycling, walking and for those in wheelchairs, it's a barrier free path with stunning views throughout. Paddling wise, access is restricted, due to the birds but there is access from Kirkgate in Kinross and Burleigh Sands. Please only stick to the areas paddlers are granted access to and refrain from getting on the water from September till March.
Skate in Kinross Bowl
The Blue bowl of Kinross is a really fun, big bowl to skate and BMX at. It's a fun, quiet location to start working on your transition skills.
Mountain Bike at Pitmedden Forest
From family trails to North Shore style features for hardcore Mountain Bikers, Pitmedden produces. Sat just above Abernethy and the border with Fife, it's a classic Scottish MTB destination.
Pitmedden Forest Car Park West, Cupar PH2 9LT
Auchterarder Skatepark is a strange old shape. A kidney bowl on a slight incline, it may take a bit to get your head round but then the potential is great!.
Paddle down the River Earn
Winding its way from Loch Earn in the west all the way to it's meeting point with the River Tay below Bridge of Earn, this is a great touring river. With lovely views everywhere, the River Earn, especially in its lower sections has some fantastic paddling on mainly grade one, slow moving water.
