The Queens View can only be described as one of the most iconic panoramas in Scotland, definitely not one to be missed.
Being only a short drive away from Pitlochry, enjoy the picturesque route along the River Tummel before reaching your destination with a simply breathtaking view of the Loch Tummel, partly surrounded by the luscious Tay Forest Park. Savour the sights for as long as you desire and compliment it with tea and a delicious lunch at the nearby Tea Rooms. If you are lucky, you may even get the privilege of viewing the spectacular mountains surrounding Glencoe by the West Coast, should it be a clear day.
If you wish to extend your visit slightly then the surrounding area of Strathtummel has plenty of fascinating forest walks for you to enjoy at your leisure.
It is often thought that the location was named after Queen Victoria who did visit it in 1866 however, more widely accepted is that the site was named after Queen Isabella, the 14th century wife of Robert the Bruce who used the spot as a resting place on her travels.
You can also enjoy a first class visitor centre across the courtyard, courtesy of the Forestry Commission, inclusive of local wildlife and history videos for you to watch and a shop stocking a wide range of guide books, gifts and maps.
Tea Rooms are open from April to October.
