Full disclosure: I am not used to driving in Scotland because I am from the U.S. but the people on that mountain are super mean. However, it REALLY sucks that in many places the whole road is 1.5 lanes and you have to slow your roll because people are either trying to scream up the mountain or scream down. And... More

Taken by friends to this view point - short walk up from car park & lovely view over the Loch. I don't think we had to pay for the park & the Café wasn't open - but we had a picnic basket. Overcast day but still pleasant tho we did have to have our afternoon tea in the vehicle as... More

The view is not to be missed and is easily accessible - once you get there! I was disappointed to find that you had to pay £2 for parking which was for the day, but you'd struggle to spend more than half hour there unless you opt for a meal. As there is no view of any sort from the... More

After travelling through narrow and not so good rural road ,this attraction close to the road is worth visiting. The Scenic View is breathtaking. The Sky was not clear on the .day we visited. So we could not fully enjoy the scenic view. The Scenic view is the only attraction. Though there is a Café and visitor centre we did... More

Close to the road with a good cafe, but surprised that you had to pay for the parking. Is it typical Scottish?

Normally we visit in February and nothing is open, however the cafe, toilets and visitor centre have now just officially opened and will hopefully be open all year round. Can't guarantee you will stumble across the photo shoot of a scotsman in all his glory playing the bagpipes, but don't miss the scenic view - fantastic!

View was excellent but perhaps understandable the fairly narrow rural road can be a bit of a challenge at peak tourist times. That said I think it is a much better road than continuing round the loch to return to Pitlochry from the other side of the loch. Café at site is good but prices are a bit high
