The name 'Fossoway' is thought to originate from the Gaelic fasach-fheidh" meaning "The Desert of the Deer" and legend has it that a coven of witches used to meet in the church yard in the 17th century and 11 were burned at the stake in the village of Crook of Devon. Nearby is Loch Leven with its dramatic setting with the town of Kinross set on its shores. It is the largest loch in lowland Scotland and one of the most important sites for waterfowl in Britain with a popular RSPB centre. Famous as the place Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned, the loch is also renowned for Loch Levenís Larder, a restaurant and delicatessen rich in local produce. The 8 mile path around Loch Leven can be walked in its entirety or in sections, stopping off at Loch Levenís Larder. Golfers are well catered with a number of local courses and those found at Gleneagles and St Andrews.
