The 'Queen's View', near Pitlochry (2068)

Loch Tummel, near Pitlochry, Scotland view map

The River Tummel is a river in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. Discharging from Loch Rannoch, it flows east to a point near the Falls of Tummel, where it bends to the southeast, a direction which it maintains until it falls into the River Tay, just below Logierait, after a course of 58 miles (93 km) from its source in Stob Ghabbar (3565 ft).

About midway in its course the Tummel expands into Loch Tummel, between which and the confluence with the Garry occur the Pass and Falls of the Tummel, which are rather in the nature of rapids, the descent altogether amounting to 15 feet (4.6 m). The scenery throughout this reach is most picturesque, culminating at the point above the eastern extremity of the loch, known as the 'Queen's View' (Queen Victoria made the view famous in 1866, although it is probably named after Queen Isabel, wife of Robert the Bruce).
