NN8659 : The 'Queen's View', Loch Tummel

taken 13 years ago, 5 km from Tressait, Perth And Kinross, Great Britain

The 'Queen's View', Loch Tummel
The 'Queen's View', Loch Tummel
This view west along Loch Tummel is a popular beauty spot. Queen Victoria picnicked here on 3rd October 1866 and records her appreciation of the view in her diary. However, the view she admired was not this one! The construction of nearby Clunie Dam for HEP generation resulted in the level of the Loch rising considerably in the post Victorian period. The conical mountain in the distance is Schiehallion.
