Hillwalking Queen's View - Scottish Walks.
Queen's view. Named Queen's View after Queen Victoria who actually walked here during one of her many jaunts throughout Scotland.
Heading north from Glasgow on the A809 the car park, although signposted, can be easily missed. The walk, which also takes in the escarpment called The Whangie, leaves from the car park, rises slightly at the start and levels off to give fine views northwards with Ben Lomond prominent and looking eastwards, the whitewashed building of the Glengoyne Distillery can be seen in the valley, nestled under Dumgoyne Hill.
Carry on along the path as it veers westward for the jewel in the crown. A great panorama unfolds to the north showing Loch Lomond, Ben Lomond and surrounding hills. Queen Victoria must have been delighted.
