The best UK locations for Christmas Walks
Christmas offers so many reasons to put on your walking boots and head out into the great outdoors. Whether it’s to breathe in the refreshing winter air, de-stress from busy shopping centres, or to walk off your Christmas dinner, there’s no denying that nothing will make you feel quite as festive as a walk over the Christmas period- and if it’s accompanied by a blanket of glistening frost- then even better! Here are a few of our favourite Christmas walking locations:
A short hike to Bone Caves
When looking for short hikes along the NC500 that would be big on views, I came across a great article over on the Ordnance Survey website of the five best short hikes in Scotland, which featured one so called “Bone Caves” walk. The caves, that tower over the valley below, are named after the bones that have been discovered here, and that lead this place to be listed as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Family activities in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park
It’s easy to make the outdoors fun at the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. It is a vast open space full of plants, wildlife, forests, lochs, rivers and hills and mountains. The area covers parts of Stirling, West Dunbartonshire, Argyll and Bute and Perth and Kinross.

The Cairngorms Nature BIG Weekend 12-14 May is a celebration of the fantastic wildlife of the Cairngorms National Park. With over 50 activities taking place across the Cairngorms National Park there will be something for everyone, from families to the more seasoned nature lover.
