The access road is windy and narrow, like most secondary roads in Scotland. Demands constant attention. At the Queen's View there is a small visitor center, and gift shop, as well as snack service.

Popped into the visitor centre café for a coffee whilst visiting the famous view. Quick pleasant service, the coffee was fine too. Didn't try the food but looked good from what I could see on other customers plates. Whilst the viewpoint is free, there is a parking fee.

It is easy to see how this was one of Queen Victoria's favourite Scottish viewpoints, on a clear day the views towards Loch Tummel, Kinloch Rannoch and further still towards Rannoch Moor are stunning and make for superb photographic opportunities, time your visit to coincide with favourable weather for all of this and should you be fortunate the wildlife of...

Visited the Queens View Visitor Centre near Pitlochry during the October holidays and was impressed by the refurbished building and the barrier free access to the viewpoint. The cafe was quite disappointing as the food was relatively expensive and not well prepared. I ordered a panini and soup which cost £10, the panini was lukewarm and the cheese not melted.... More

The view was not visible on our first visit due to mist. However, we returned the next day and it was quite beautiful. We got some good photographs. The car park was £2 (a little excessive as we paid twice!). The shop was quaint but they did charge £1.60 for a can of ice tea!
