Lake District

  • Distance or area: 2292 sq km
  • Type: National Park
  • Location: North West England

There has long been a fascination with this place. Alfred Wainwright made the Lakes his life’s work, writing seven guidebooks in which he created beautiful pen and ink sketches, maps and descriptions and we haven’t stopped eulogising about it since. And with good reason. It is justifiably famous for the interplay between its mountains and water, not forgetting its high fells, rocky crags and lush dales.

Glenmore

  • Start point: Glenmore Visitor Centre
  • Type: Ancient pinewood
  • Location: Scotland

This once large ancient pinewood suffered massive clearance of mature pine in the early 20th century and then was planted largely with non-native conifers. This Forestry Commission site is now undergoing a transition as conservation management clears out the alien trees to allow pine regeneration.
