Places to Visit

Lochend Park – Perhaps one of the best parts of Lochend! A lovely area of parkland, complete with a pond (Loch), children’s play area, teen area, sports area and plenty of green space. It’s also home to a Dovecot which you see as soon as you enter the park; built in the 16th century to supply pigeons to Lochend Castle, it was even used as a ‘plague kiln’ in 1564 to burn clothes and bedding of people whom had become infected during the outbreak of plague.
