Strong winds were blowing up the ‘white horses’ on Loch Leven over the weekend.
The new year has brought plenty of weather already. We’ve had a whole bunch of rain and the water level on the loch is right up. We’ve had over 120mm so far and the loch is nearly at capacity. The boat has needed emptying daily.

We have been clearing trees in this area. The level in the ponds is right up. This is the former route of the North Quiech into the loch.
The little islands at Levenmouth have nearly disappeared. The mute swans dont have much to sit on.

The water level is at the same height as the end of the pier
