Black and White Sunday: A View fit for a Queen

queens-view-in-bw

The Queen’s View in Highland Perthshire overlooks Loch Tummel. Queen Victoria is said to have remarked that the spectacular view was named after her, when she visited the area in 1866. However, it has also been suggested that the view was in fact named after King Robert the Bruce’s wife, Isabella, over 550 years earlier. Although she never actually became queen as she died in 1296 ten years before Bruce was crowned king. She was just 19 years old.

Whichever version you prefer, the view is stunning.

I now live back in the UK, but spent several years travelling the world and then living in South Africa. I look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I’m going to be miserable and say that I like it better in colour. 🙂 I saw it on a walking programme on TV recently and thought I wouldn’t mind being there. Gilly’s shot is a stunner, isn’t it, but as you say, you have to be there to take the photo.
