Balado

Golf Ball at BaladoBalado is a relatively new settlement, up until twenty years ago there was no village, simply a collection of farms. Easily identifiable by the NATO Communications Facility or the "Golfball", Balado has also become well known for T in the Park. This, the biggest music festival in Scotland is held at Balado Activity Centre, on an ex World War II airfield, and has become a very popular international annual event.

Along the B918 road from Kinross to Carnbo can still be seen the a strange old stone, known as the "Lecker Stane". Years ago when people from the outlying areas died, their coffins had to be carried all the way into Kinross for the burial service. On this huge roadside stone the coffin was laid for a few moments for the bearers to rest, or change over.
