Kinross, Perth & Kinross

Kinross is a burgh in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. It was formerly the county town of Kinross-shire. Kinross is a fairly small town, with some attractive buildings. The site of the original parish church and churchyard are located down a small wynd overlooking Loch Leven, a little away from the town. The town was originally linked by railway to Perthshire, Fife and Clackmannanshire. However, one by one, these rail links were lost, leaving the town isolated to an extent. Recently, Kinross has expanded somewhat, especially since the construction of the M90 motorway, which bypasses the town. The burgh is attractively located on the shores of Loch Leven, and there are boat trips around the loch and to Loch Leven Castle. The annual T in the Park music festival is held nearby.
