While you’re there, make sure to visit the historic well and wash house. The well has long been known for its supposed healing properties, and it’s a site shrouded in folklore and legends. There’s something serene about the well’s aura, perhaps a nod to its storied past. And let’s not forget the wash house, a 19th-century marvel that once served as the village’s communal laundry. The well-preserved basins and ‘stoups’ transport you back to a simpler time.

And for those of you who are nature enthusiasts, Bishop Hill is the local hill you absolutely must visit. A part of the Lomond Hills, it offers hiking trails suitable for both the newbie and the experienced hiker. Reach the summit and you’re greeted with awe-inspiring views of Loch Leven and the surrounding countryside. I recommend taking a small picnic basket; the vista up there is the perfect backdrop for a meal.
