Kinross boomed during the Industrial Revolution thanks to its weaving industry and by the 1990s it had become a world leader in the production of cashmere. The town is situated next to Loch Leven, which is the largest loch in the Scottish Lowlands and has been classed as a nature reserve since 1964, due to it being inhabited by pink footed geese. In the summer months there are regular boat trips across the loch to Loch Leven Castle, which saw a great deal of action during the War of Scottish Independence and was the location where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned in 1567, before her daring escape by boat a year later.
Kinross has a 16 mile heritage trail and is a popular spot for brown trout fishing, hiking and golf. It also has an ice rink, which has continued the Scottish traditional sport of curling since the Loch Leven curling club was formed in 1667. Today the curling usually takes place on the indoor ice rink, but during particularly cold Scottish winters, the club has been known to play on the lake, just as their ancestors did when they formed the club over 300 years ago.
