10 beautiful scenery pictures from around the UK

The UK is blessed with some of the world’s greatest and most diverse scenery. Pulling on your walking boots is the perfect way to see it, and will help keep your heart healthy too. 

Our photo gallery provides some inspiration. If you want to walk with the BHF, our new Sunset to Sunrise Treks or our 24 peaks challenges cover some of the most stunning parts of Britain and by taking part you’ll be helping our lifesaving work, too.

Scotland

Wild, remote and jaggedly beautiful - as this picture of the Black Mount range of four Munros shows - the Scottish Highlands is unmatched for scale and grandeur. 

To take on a challenge in the Highlands, try our Scottish 24 Peaks challenge. You'll trek through some of the most majestic scenery in the country, including Ben Lawers and the Tarmachan Ridge.

The view from Ben Nevis at dawn is breathtaking. You too can be on the summit of the UK's highest mountain at daybreak with our Ben Nevis Sunset to Sunrise Trek.

 

Limestone and Church Rock, Pembrokeshire

Mike Alexander

Dramatic and beautiful, yet comparatively little known – if you haven’t walked along some of the Pembrokeshire coast in Wales, you should.

Learn more about the Pembrokeshire Coast or get detailed information on the Pembrokeshire Coast National Trail.

 

Pembrokeshire Coast

Our Sunset to Sunrise trek is a unique walk along 24km of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. You'll cross steep limestone cliffs, volcanic headlands and sandstone bays, starting after sunset at St Govan’s Head and arriving on beautiful Tenby as the sun rises.

 

Lake District

With scenery like this, it’s little wonder that the Lake District is one of the most popular walking destinations in the UK.

Why not take on our 24 peaks challenge, more than 30 miles and 24 peaks one weekend.

 

Cwm Idwal, Snowdonia 

Mike Alexander

When it comes to dramatic peaks, Snowdonia in north Wales is up there with the best. You can walk up Mount Snowdon the easy way – or push yourself by taking on no less than 24 peaks in a weekend, including the Carneddau summits as well as Snowdon. Sign up to the Snowdonia Challenge.

South Downs National Park

The Seven Sisters is one of the most breathtaking spots of the beautiful South Downs National Park. Challenge yourself with this string of hills – yes, seven of them.

Want to walk them by night? Sign up to our South Downs Sunset to Sunrise Trek.

Amazing wildlife spectacles, especially seabirds and wading birds, add even more magic to a walk along the coast in many parts of the UK.

 

Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland

The Giant's Causeway is one of Northern Ireland's most popular attractions - but it's well worth investing the time in a longer walk along the stunning Antrim Coast.
