Rephotography - Queen’s view, Loch Tummel

Dougie Vipond and photographer Colin Prior begin a major BBC campaign to capture man's impact on the Scotland's landscape. Euan follows the journey of the famous Edinburgh Christmas tree from felling in the forest to the switch-on of lights. Find out if the Young family are ready to part with their feathered friends in the final instalment of Landward's 'Turkey for Christmas' series.

The Queens View over Loch Tummel is said to be one of the most photographed views in Scotland.

The view has changed dramatically since it became a favourite of Queen Victoria. Loch Tummel was dammed as part of a Hydro-Electric Power Scheme in the 1950s, raising it’s water level by 4.5 meters.

Perth and Kinross Group

Perth and Kinross is one of Scotland’s 32 unitary council areas. It borders Aberdeenshire, Angus, Dundee City, Fife, Clackmannanshire, Stirling, Argyll and Bute and Highland. It has its administrative centre in Perth.

It corresponds broadly, but not exactly, with the former counties of Perthshire and Kinross-shire. These two counties operated under a joint county council from 1929 until 1975, when they merged into a single district of Tayside Region. The current council area was formed in 1996.
