Vane Farm Nature Centre

An RSPB reserve with several hides along the shore of Loch Leven and woodland walks on the hill above the centre.

There's a shop downstairs and a quiet cafe above with telescopes by the windows to look at the wildlife on the shore and the Loch. Good coffee and unusually good cafe food. The chef has removed speakers and has resisted attempts to introduce background music.

A good place to stop off for rest and refreshment on the drive north to Perth and the Highlands.

La Barantine Victoria

Small French cafe, sister to the one in Bruntsfield. Very good coffee. Croissants, pastries, cakes to eat there or to buy to take away. Pleasant and attentive staff.
Although musac-free they do have radio spillage from the open kitchen door here too, which they have turned down for me on occasion.
