Loch Ness Voted Best View in UK

Research by London North Eastern Railway (LNER) has found that Loch Ness, Arthur’s Seat and the Tower of London are some of the nation’s favourite views.

Top of the list of places that inspire, delight and excite us was the iconic Loch Ness, with 27 percent of Brits insisting it was their favourite vista.

This was joined by Lake Windermere in the Lake District (27 percent), the capital’s London Eye (26 percent) and the Tower of London (24 percent).

A range of views from all over the UK made the list, spanning the Yorkshire Dales (24 percent), the Welsh views of Snowdonia (23 percent), Ben Nevis in Scotland (18 percent) and the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland – as featured in Game of Thrones (16 percent).

Some of the other best views according to the nation showcase iconic countryside vistas including Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh (15 percent) and Bamburgh Castle (nine percent). Hadrian’s Wall (12 percent) and the Three Sisters in Glencoe Valley, Scotland (11 percent) also made the list.

In fact, according to the research, a whopping two thirds of Britons have desperately missed being able to visit UK beauty spots during the past year (67 percent), with 58 percent hoping to visit their favourite UK destinations as soon as restrictions are lifted and it’s safe to do so.
