Places to see without leaving the country including day trips.

My Favourite Places
A list of my favourite UK places to visit in England, Wales & Scotland.
The beautiful Loch Tay is surrounded by mountains and a great place to camp. White Water Rafting on the River Tay is a fun day out, followed by visiting a local distillery in Scotland.
Snowdonia National Park
Say in Betsy Coed, Wales as a base camp with the aim of climbing Mount Snowdon and the Glyders on the next mountain range over. Great views of a clear day and a challenge to reach the peaks.
The River Wye downstream of Ross-on-Wye is stunning and can easily see why it is an AONB. The area is good for camping and hiking as well as wildlife spotting. IMO a great place to get the camera out and do some photography.
