This site benefits from a lovely circular walk that will take you right around the entire reservoir and through various habitats that contain all sorts of interesting wildlife. The northern side of the loch has a surfaced path and affords a view of the open water while the south side is a rough track through sparse woodland. The site is one of the largest areas of open water in Fife, approx. 2.5 miles around the loch. If you’re looking for a longer walk this circular route also links into the wider core path network which can take you North to St Andrews going through Craigtoun Country Park, a trip of about 8 miles there and back.
Cameron Reservoir is recognised as a key site for wintering waterfowl of significant numbers including a large population of pink-footed geese. Because of this, the site has been granted international recognition and protection as a Special Protection Area (SPA).
You can find the small car park at the east side of the loch by turning off the A915 between Largoward and St Andrews at Cameron Kirk. The car park is approx. 3/4 mile from the turn-off.
