Haven't been, but always thought Loch Leven would be a good stop over, I had a quick look on google maps, but maps are slow at the mo, I did get a street view at a car park around area you mention, looks good, I'd go for it, unless signs say otherwise. Let us know how you get on please?

Cheers.

Ps. this looks promising too??? http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=Kirkgate+park+at+Loch+leven&hl=en&ll=56.178719,-3.314781&spn=0.000191,0.109692&sll=57.746995,-4.687341&sspn=6.182365,14.040527&t=h&hq=Kirkgate+park+at+Loch+leven&z=13&layer=c&cbll=56.178721,-3.348082&panoid=bXM0w2c6g-iZ8e_XrODviQ&cbp=12,45.97,,0,29.38

Hi Rach,

I have not been there, but looking on google maps, the entrance to Kirkgate (at the junction with Burns-Begg St and Pier Road) shows a 2T limit, :mad1: and there are 2 posts/poles either side of the entrance, making it appear very narrow, :mad1: which would suggest Kirkgate would not be suitable for parking, except for very small vans.

:idea: There is a car park to the north of the loch, at 56.221423,-3.398015, it doesn't appear to offer the views, but looks like it could be a good stop over. I hope this helps, :goodluck:

Nice view at the spot near Vane Farm but if you like parking beside a road that has fast traffic all day and night it will be ok
