Tarland and Cromar Notice Board

The Queen’s View, Tarland, Dee Valley, Aberdeenshire. This spectacular spot is nominated in this week’s Country Life as the Prince of Wales’ favourite view.
‘I have known this spectacular view all my life and never tire of seeing it again,’ The Prince writes.
‘There seems to be a perfect balance in the broad sweep of the Howe of Cromar, with its patchwork of small farms and woodland, leading the eye gently up to the summit of Lochnagar, 20 miles or more away.
‘Part of the attraction is that every visit is slightly different. The seasons create dramatic changes, with snow on the highest hills for much of the year, and sometimes spark-ling across the lowlands in the foreground, too.
‘At other times, sunshine and showers race each other across the fields, creating alternating shadows and the brightest of lights. The colours and the detail of the landscape are always changing, with the grass glowing a bright green in the spring and gradually giving way to ripening barley, bales in the fields and all the rich tints
of autumn leaves in the woodland.
‘This magnificent beauty spot gained its name from Queen Victoria, who fell in love with what quickly became known as Royal Deeside more than 150 years ago. It is said that the Queen ordered her coach to stop so she could admire this view across the Lower Valley of the Dee, looking towards her beloved Balmoral and the peak of Lochnagar. We know from her diaries that Queen Victoria returned repeatedly to the spot during her frequent stays on Deeside, and it is easy to see why.
‘For me, whenever I drive over the crest of the Howe, this panoramic view never fails to lift my spirits. The fact that this unspoiled place has not altered greatly for hundreds of years makes it even more remarkable and memorable. Above all, this is a view which epitomises Aberdeenshire, a part of the world I have known and loved for my entire life.’
