Guest Post: 5 breathtaking views from around the Great British Isles

November 16, 2011 § 4 Comments

Countryside fan James Agate rounds up the most beautiful vistas in the UK for your viewing pleasure.

If you’re looking for stunning views and breathtaking scenery then you really look no further than the shorelines of good old Blighty. Here are, in my opinion, some of the best views in Great Britain.

THORNHAM, Norfolk

By Martin P

Thornham is a sleepy village on the North Norfolk coast. The last time I visited there was really nothing more than some great country pubs and restaurants and for me this was part of the charm. Thornham and in particular the harbour and surrounding marsh area is unspoilt and quintessentially coastal.

The scenic walk between Holme nature reserve and Thornham harbour culminating in a local ale at The Lifeboat Inn comes highly recommended.

BEMPTON CLIFFS, Yorkshire

By Tom Tolkien

The home of over 200,000 seabirds, Bempton Cliffs is easily the best place in the whole of England to see some spectacular wildlife sights not to mention the stunning views across the North Sea.

LEITH HILL, Surrey

The second highest point in Southern England, from the peak on a clear day you can see right the way across Surrey into Central London and in the distance you can make out the English Channel. Well worth the somewhat strenuous walk to the top.

LLYN CRAFNANT, North Wales

Easily one of the most serene and tranquil parts of the British Isles. Llyn Crafnant is nestled high in the Snowdonia National Park and is quite simply an unspoilt haven for scenery and wildlife.

LOCH VENACHAR, Scotland

A real haven for wildlife enthusiasts, you’ll likely stumble across superb view after superb view as you explore the area around the loch.

    Some interesting suggestions here for breathtaking views of the British Isles. Thornham looks interesting from a landscape photography point of view and Llyn Crafant I know very well and of all of the suggestions I would say is the best.
    If you care to take a look at my website I am sure you will find other alternative views that would more than supplement the suggestions above.

    Just found your post listing Llyn Crafnant: great place, lots of great walks around the lake – and a fantastic little cafe by the water’s edge!
