Top British natural landmarks

less than a minute reading

You thought that England was just about big cities, their art galleries and museums? And that Scotland could only propose distilleries, golf courses and lost Castles? Well, think twice. All over the island, from Scotland's famous Lochs to the white cliffs of Dover, you will find many opportunities for escaping into the wild: hiking, wandering through natural parks (put Snowdonia first on the list if you can), admiring splendid landscapes (special mention for the Highlands, the Hebrides, the Isle of Skye), watching birds, whales or dolphins. If you are around in the winter, you will also ski in Scottish best resorts.

I got the travel virus when taking a 5-months travel break a few years ago. I believe that every place, every area is worth unveiling. Beauty lies everywhere.
