Scotland voted most beautiful country

Today is a good day for Scotland.  Rough guide viewers voted the country as the most beautiful in the world.  With both England and Wales making the top ten, its a great result for the United Kingdom.  I’m pleased as it shows that many agree with my article that we have some of the best places to see mountains in the world.  Check out my post to see the top recommendations of places to visit across each region for an adventure near you.

Why visit Scotland?

Scotland is the perfect location for those wanting to get away from it all and escape the urban rat race.  For those budding photographers out there bring your camera along and capture some unique images that will give you memories to last a life time.  Have a look at my free guide to mountain photography here to help you get the most out of your day out.

For those with an adventurous spirit why not try climbing your first munro?  A munro is a Scottish mountains over 3000ft, we have 282 of them.  While none of them are easy, some are more straight forward than others.  Head over to my guide here for help with selecting your first summit and make sure your first adventure gets off to a great start.

Remember to ensure you’re properly equipped before heading outdoors on your first munro hike.  If you are unsure exactly what to take, have a look at my quick check list of equipment I carry regularly with me in the Scottish highlands here.

Do you have any recommendations about places to visit in Scotland or the wider UK?  I would love to hear your suggestions in the comments below.  For a small country we have such a variety of places to visit, stunning scenery and remote locations to enjoy.  Hopefully this site can give you some ideas and inspiration along the way, just make sure you get there and find your own adventure!
