One of Scotland’s truly iconic panoramas, right in the centre of Highland Perthshire

Queen's View Visitor Centre

A royally rewarding retreat

Queen's View lies at the heart of Highland Perthshire and is the area's most popular visitor attraction. Just one look is enough to tell you why.

When Queen Victoria visited in 1866, she assumed that the sweeping view west along Loch Tummel was named after her – but she was wrong. We think the view was really named after Isabella, the first wife of Robert the Bruce, who lived more than 500 years earlier.

Today, you too can enjoy views fit for a queen, along with a nice cup of tea from our café. Pick out some gifts at the well-stocked shop and relax before exploring the nearby forests.
