Queen's View by Tom Gomez
Clear

One of the outstanding beauty spots in all of Scotland is the Queen’s View where, on clear days, a panorama of lake and mountain scenery stretches westwards as far as the Glencoe hills.

There is just a little doubt about which Queen is meant. Queen Victoria certainly visited it in 1866, when travelling privately, “incognita” as she so correctly puts it. However, it is more widely believed to have been named after Queen Isabella the 14th century wife of Robert the Bruce.

    great shot tom , is it true that some people own fishing rights in rivers

  • It depends. Some of the rivers run through private estates and in this case, it can be quite expensive to fish as you have to pay. The landowners have made a business of it and rich people are willing to pay a lot of money to fish for salmon or trout.

    In England, you need to buy a fishing permit from the local authority, but in Scotland, you need to get permission from the owner of the fishing rights, or his agent.
