Walks

There are lots of stunning walks near Shiel including two right on the doorstep which we have mapped out below.
1
Shiel Gardens & Woods

20-30 minute circular walk starting from the house – a great chance to explore the gardens and woods that surround Shiel House and experience some of the fantastic views (hopefully on a clear day!) Just follow the red sticks starting from the main lawn.

2
Rumbling Bridge River Gorge Walk
Lovely 1-2 hour walk with a fantastic gorge and old bridge to see on route! Start by heading down the drive, turn right on the road and then before you reach the village take a left down some steps on the river walk. This takes you to Rumbling Bridge.
3
Loch Leven Heritage Trail Walk
Loch Leven Heritage Trail is a unique trail linking natural, historic and cultural heritage around
Loch Leven.

Being around the loch, it benefits from being pretty level and barrier-free for most of its length of 12 miles, so the Trail is suitable for walkers of all ages and abilities, for cyclists, for wheelchair and motorised scooter users. Bikes can be hired in Kinross and there are various nice places to stop around the way (such as Burleigh Sands as per image below which is a nice beach for a picnic on a good day!)
