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.
Queen’s View visitor centre, shop, café and toilets are closed. The car park and viewpoint remain open. Toilet facilties and forest walks can be found at nearby Allean forest, around 1/2 mile away.
The charge to park at Queen's View is £2 for the day for cars, and £10 for a minibus or coach.
We recommend bringing coins and cards, just in case. Blue Badge holders park free in this car park. Please park with care and consideration. In particular please park in designated parking areas only and do not block entrances or gates. Nearby car parks with free parking can be found in our local forest list without the £ symbol.
