Favorite pastime around the globe
Around the world, families and recreation seekers take to the outdoors, “roughing” it by living off of the land. Traditional camping is increasingly becoming a long past thing with RV’s and campers becoming so popular. Either way, camping is a favorite and popular summer pastime all over the world. The UK, for instance, has several top-rated lakeside campgrounds throughout the region. So if natural adventure is the desire, check out several of these top-rated places for the next overnight camping endeavor.
Best places to visit and explore
The land of Scotland could be the most wild and mystical place in the UK. The picturesque landscape offers a fairy-tale feel, with mysterious lochs and glens, and whimsical rolling hillsides of fragrant heather. Scotland Law has very relaxed trespassing guidelines, so almost all of the countryside is a potential new place to pitch a tent or park a caravan for a free night of camping and enjoyment of the most beautiful scenery around. Scottish Outdoor Access Code is a great reference guide for those serene wilderness seekers wanting peace and self restoration.
Dartmoor National Park offers an eery sense of beauty for those more interested in the mysterious and supernatural feel of nature. This campsite is the only of its kind in England that allows free camping in the wild for a few nights with lakeside activities and scenery. The rugged landscape is perfect for hiking, climbing, and pot-holding. The website for Dartmoor National Park guides park goers to seek to get the most out of the terrain.
Perhaps the most romantic lakeside visit closest to the conveniences of the London metropolis is The Lake District, which is operated by the Great Langdale site. One can pitch a tent right in the presence of the Great Langdale Pikes. The Langdale scenery sets a perfect scene for energetic hiking and peaceful relaxation. This romantic atmosphere could be the setting of a lovely date, anniversary, or romantic weekend getaway.
Another top-rated camping treasure is found, once again, in Scotland. This place is located on the shores of Loch Linnhe. This highland getaway, Bunree Caravan Camp site, near Onich, Fort William, offers lake edge caravan camping with a mountainous view, fishing, watersports, and nearby site-seeing. Facilities for washing, laundry, restroom use, etc. are offered as well. On site, there is a child-friendly playground and a campsite shop.
Choosing your escape
These wondrous places are just a few of the best lakeside campgrounds and areas available throughout the UK. It is a diverse yet awe-inspiring landscape; the regions span from rolling hills of heather north in the Highlands to meadows teeming with nature near the city of London. Whether the goal of the camping trip is to find peace and solitude, sending the trip back to simpler time, or getting up and on the move with a brisk jump into nature, the best trip for each vacation goal can be found at these helpful sites.
