Queens View Café and Shop is now open Wednesday to Sunday 10am till 4pm.
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.

Queens View Café is open Wednesday to Sunday from 10am to 4pm.
The charge to park at Queen's View is £2 for the day.
