View from Queen’s View, Trossachs

This evening, I am posting information on scenic views from vantage point Queen’s View in the Trossachs region of Scotland and not be confused with namesake near Pitlochry in Central Scotland. The Trossachs viewpoint is named after excursions undertaken by Queen Victoria who was very fond of Scotland.

The site overlooks Strathblane and the Campsie Fells to the east. Location is about eleven miles NNW of Glasgow, Scotland on A809.

Queen’s view is actually starting point of a hiking trail which takes in the escarpment called the Whangie. The trail leaves from the Queen’s view car park, rises slightly at the start and levels off to give fine views northwards with Ben Lomond prominent and looking eastwards Glengoyne Distillery can be seen in the valley, nestled under Dumgoyne Hill.

Further on along the trail a panorama unfolds to the north showing Loch Lomond (lake), Ben Lomond (mountain) and surrounding hills.
