This hasn’t been the best year, and there is still a lot that we can’t do right now, whether we want to or not. But something that we can do as well as being good for the mind and body is take a refreshing winter walk in the countryside.
There is nothing like wrapping up warm in Irish wool aran sweaters, and a chunky scarf and walking through the beautiful British countryside in the winter. If you are wondering where to go, here are some of the best locations for you to enjoy a winter walk this year…
The Scottish Highlands are one of the most stunning places on earth in the winter. The wild landscape and chilly temperatures combine to create show stopping scenery. Walk the Loch Morlich route and see the wildlife that resides here if you are lucky – the ptarmigan, deer and golden eagles. The ancient forest of the area is teeming with life.
The Peak District – Discover the stunning scenery and beautiful buildings that make up the Peak District. Walk alongside the river Wye to the village of Bakewell, and discover the impressive Haddon Hall, with its fine collection of Tudor furniture.
The Brecon Beacons is the place to go if you want to see the beautiful waterfall walk. Sgwd yr Eira is the regions most impressive fall – it translates to English as fall of snow, and where could be more appropriate in the wintertime!
