There are lots of stunning walks near Shiel including two right on the doorstep which we have mapped out below.

Shiel Gardens & Woods

20-30 minute circular walk starting from the house – a great chance to explore the gardens and woods that surround Shiel House and experience some of the fantastic views (hopefully on a clear day!) Just follow the red sticks starting from the main lawn.

Rumbling Bridge River Gorge Walk

Lovely 1-2 hour walk with a fantastic gorge and old bridge to see on route! Start by heading down the drive, turn right on the road and then before you reach the village take a left down some steps on the riverwalk. This takes you to Rumbling Bridge.

Loch Leven Heritage Trail Walk

Loch Leven Heritage Trail is a unique trail linking natural, historic and cultural heritage around Loch Leven. Being around the loch, it benefits from being pretty level and barrier-free for most of its length of 12 miles, so the Trail is suitable for walkers of all ages and abilities, for cyclists, for wheelchair and motorised scooter users.
