Cameron Reservoir

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 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).

There is a 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.
