QUEENS VIEW, LOCH TAY AND MORE


QUEENS VIEW, LOCH TAY AND MORE

Your driver will take you to Queens View to admire one of the most iconic panoramas in Scotland and for a photo opportunity. On a clear day, you can see the peak of Schiehallion, and other mountains surrounding Glencoe.

Continue your scenic drive along the Lochside and over the moorland to the ancient Fortingall Yew Tree, thousands of years old it is possibly the oldest living thing in Europe. 

Head to Loch Tay through the charming village of Kenmore (The Kenmore Hotel boasts the oldest Scottish Inn dating back to 1572, with a poem inscribed by Robert Burns in 1787). For a Bronze Age experience stop at The Crannog Centre and step out onto the Loch.   

Your journey can take you for a pit-stop at Highland Safaris Centre to visit their delightful cafe, red deer and barn owl encounter, and even pan for gold! (The largest piece of gold found in Scotland was nearby at Schiehallion mine!)

If you can't resist the temptation, try the guided chocolate tasting at the Highland Chocolatiers before returning to Pitlochry.

Other optional stops enroute included Castle Menzies, Cluny House GardensAberfeldy and Dewar's Distillery.
