A majestic view deserves a regal companion, and the newly opened Queen’s View Visitor Centre ticks all the boxes.

Nestled in the resplendent heart of Tay Forest Park, the refurbished Visitor Centre close to Pitlochry is already proving a hit with locals and visitors alike.

The new centre has been designed to complement the famous view – a sweeping vista which takes in tranquil Loch Tummel, backdropped by the sleeping giant Schiehallion.

From the state of the art design that depicts the tale of the View’s two queens, to the welcoming café serving up delicious bites to eat and a well deserved cuppa, the centre is truly a jewel in Perthshire’s tourism crown. Legend has it that Queen Victoria was rather keen on supping a brew here, although the location has also been linked to much earlier royalty – Isabella of Mar, the first wife of Robert the Bruce.

Nowadays you don’t need blue blood running through your veins to enjoy one of the finest views in the land. And you won’t have to sell your sceptre to buy a little souvenir of your trip in the splendid gift shop.

Pop in and say hello, it’s the perfect place to recharge and refresh during your visit to Tay Forest Park.

If you’re in a different part of the country, worry not! We have welcoming visitor centres across Scotland to enjoy on any trip to the forest.

See you soon...
