Queen's View, Pitlochry

4.5
#2 of 37 in Things to do in Pitlochry
Feel like royalty at Queen's View, where Queen Victoria enjoyed her favorite views. Pictures don’t do justice to what is said to be one of the most photographed views in Scotland. Revel over the sights of the River Tummel and the reflections of the mountains in the background. Afterwards, sip hot tea at the nearby tearoom. If driving, bring some extra change for parking.

  • Very nice view, makes for a great spot to stop and have a picnic. Going in the evening is also great to get the view all to yourself, but careful for bug bites.  more »
  • Do stop here to enjoy the glorious view. It is breathtaking. Bring your camera! Easy walk from the nearby car park. (Cafe is excellent too.)  more »
  • Good road to cycle to fron Pitlochry. Narrow and winding but traffic is generally very accommodating. God stop for coffe before heading along the loch.  more »

  • A great viewpoint looking down Loch Tummel. Good cafe with nice veranda overlooking the forest.
  • Beautiful view down the loch, good parking,places for a picnic, nice cafe.
  • I have travelled and visited most of Scotland. I have membership to both Historic Scotland and The National Trust for Scotland. This was my first visit to The Queen's View visitor centre. I found the car parking spacious and adequate for my visit in early May 2016. The café and shop were very clean and welcoming. The staff were helpful and friendly. The prices were about the same as I would have expected anywhere else. Why I have given this five stars are the toilets were immaculate as I would expect whenever I visit a well run establishment. A very good management team. Well done !!!
  • Nice view, plenty parking, cafe and shop.
  • One of the best views on the way up North, tempered by a two quid parking charge. We'll worth a visit if the weather's nice.
