Queens View

Queen's View and Loch Tummel near Pitlochry in Scotland is a must when in Perthshire and is one of the most breath-taking panoramic scenes we have enjoyed. It enjoys the deserved reputation of being the most photographed part of Scotland with its outlook across to the Tay Forest Park, Schiehallion hill and Loch Tummel. On a clear day you can see across the Glencoe Mountains.

Queens View Scotland

Queen's View Scotland is named after 14th Century Queen Isabella of Scotland, the wife of King Robert the Bruce, who stopped here on her explorations. Queen Victoria visited the area in 1866 and it is often mistakenly said the scenic spot is named in her honour.

Loch Tummel

The views West across Loch Tummel will have changed since our Monarch's time because in the 1950s it was raised by 4.5 meters when a dam was built during the Hydro-Electric Power Scheme. This does not detract from its beauty though.
