The view is still as good as ever here and the café has been completely remodelled since last year and is now much bigger, brighter and more modern but a little too much like a cafeteria for our liking so we didn't stay. The shop has also been remodelled and is bright and modern but much smaller and has none... More

WOW, what an amazing view. It costs £2 to park and is a very short walk to get to the viewpoint. There is a café there – it’s just a shame you can’t see the view whilst sitting outside relaxing in the sun and enjoying a nice cold drink. If you like stunning views, then this is a definite must...

The view here is definitely lovely - however you HAVE to use the pay & display car park by buying a 'day' ticket. Checking out the lovely view takes about 10 - 20 minutes then this leaves only the wee shop & cafe if you want them... Money goes towards maintaining the forrest - well - charge me more for... More

Very short drive and very nice views. Not much more than that. The drive from Pitlochry is on a narrow road. Note that Google maps may mis-place this place

We called in on a trip around Scotland to admire the view. We found a much changed facilities from previous visits, we enjoyed a pot of tea and cake at the new café and of course the view. It is questionable the £2 should be charged for parking to enjoy a view and a cup of tea. I don’t think... More

This was a scenic view (I saw hairy coos!) on a curvy road only 7 miles outside of Pitlochry (plan on it taking 20-30 mins). I was surprised by the $2.00 charge for parking, and especially surprised that when I went into the gift shop to get change in order to pay for parking (coins only and they will only... More

The view is stunning even on a cloudy day, but £2.00 for parking isn't justified considering we were there no longer than half hour. Prices in the cafe/shop were also a tad expensive therefore didn't spend any longer than taking a few photographs.

Well worth the drive up the winding road for this spectacular view, lovely visitor centre and tea room as well.

Worth the trip to see. The view is everyone's image of the scotland countryside. Story behind the View is quaint.

We usually visit the spectacular spot most years on our annual trip to Scotland and have always spent time just drinking in that wonderful view. It is beautiful in most weathers, but at its best in the morning from the viewpoint with the sun behind you shining down the loch. This year there is a lovely new restaurant in what... More
