History

Kinross, Scotland

Kinross a charming and bustling town with narrow streets and old buildings found in every corner.  

Kinross is to mean ‘The Head of the Point’.  This is in relation to the original location of its church overlooking Loch Leven.

Most famously the loch and its islands that caused the original growth of a settlement here.  Loch Leven Castle, on Castle Island, is well known for the imprisonment of Mary Queen of Scots and her escape on 2 May 1568.

Another iconic building is Kinross House built around 1690 by Sir William Bruce and is now privately owned and tun bu the Montgomery family.  It has been known for the odd celebrity to hire the place out!

Kinross was a bit of a pit stop to the north back in the day when it was mostly known for its industry in weavers, cutlers, shoemakers and ironworkers.

This lead to local wool weaving companies by 1860.  This tradition in spinning cashmere continued into the ’90s, turning Mongolian goat hair into enough yarn to make millions of garments per year.

Modern-day Kinross is now awash with activities from Curling to Tennis, Bowling to Golf and Bird Watching to Hot Air Ballooning to name a few.  You really have to come to immerse yourself in Scotland at it’s best!
