Queen's View is top tip for walk
Bookmark and Share
The Queen's View over Loch Tummel in Perthshire has been highlighted as offering an outstanding forest walk.

Featured in the Scotsman Newspaper as the latest Walk of the Week, the name of the vista has variously been attributed to the tastes of Queen Victoria, Mary Queen of Scots and Robert the Bruce's wife Queen Isabella.

Taking in part of the Allean Forest, the trek climbs around 590 ft while covering two and a half miles, which may make ideal for those wearing good walking boots and fleeces on a short winter day.

Visitors will be able to enjoy plenty of wildlife such as pine martens and red squirrels, as well as evidence of human settlements going back to the Iron Age, with the remains of a roundhouse on the route.

Earlier this year, 728 sq km of Perthshire was given national park status when the boundaries of the Cairngorms was extended, expanding the total area of Britain's largest national park to 4,528 sq km.
