I'm going to take you on a wee trip out of the city for a few days, seeing as many of you are on holiday, and it's good to see a bit of the countryside as well as just our fine capital city. This is the Queen's View, a wonderful view looking over Loch Tummel in Perthsire, about 120km north of Edinburgh. Some say it was given this name because Queen Victoria stopped here on her way to Balmoral. Most however say that it was named after Queen Isabella, wife of Robert the Bruce, who loved coming to this glorious part of Scotland.
