United Kingdom
Written by wowrange

The United Kingdom is too vast to cover it all in one trip but you can totally prioritize your trip according to what you want out of it. This list is for the camping addicts. Here are five wild UK camping expeditions that will stay with you for years.

United Kingdom

1] Kielder Forest Park

At the border of England and Scotland, you will find this 590 square miles of dense forest where you can start your UK camping expeditions goals. No, you obviously cannot go jaywalking everywhere in that huge area. It is the largest and darkest forest park in Europe.

You have 17 spots approved by the forest commission for camping. Pick one and put your tents up but let your adventurous soul accompany the leash of wisdom to keep you from straying into the denser parts. You will get to witness wildlife up close during the day, and clear starry skies during the nights. You will get running water but that is about it. Live the natural way on this camping trip.

2] Scoraig Peninsula

You cannot drive to the Scoraig village in Scotland. You need to walk for about 5 miles from Badrallach. There are many camping grounds here. Take your UK camping expeditions to Beinn Ghobhlach, or Dearg Mhor, or Little Loch Broom. You will see golden eagles and other wild but mostly harmless animals like wild goats. You can step up the game with hiking, fishing, and climbing around the loch.

3] The Dartmoor National Park

This England moorland serves as a perfect UK camping expeditions site. The landscape is varied with river banks, granite paths, and vast stretches of moorlands. As far as the fauna is concerned, you will meet harmless animals like deer, birds, and whether you like it or not, some lizards.

4] Isle of Lewis & Harris

This is the largest Hebridean Island is situated a little off the path from the mainland. You can easily get there by ferry. There is no difficult trekking to do. But when you reach this UK camping expeditions site, you will find yourself closer to nature. The beaches are mostly white and the water is clear blue.

The landscape is of the mixed type. There are dunes sheltering you from the heat on the west coast. There are rocky hills around. You will be close to some villages so you are not completely abandoned but you’ll feel closer to the wild lifestyle at the same time. You can go for ridge climbing and eagle watching expeditions on this camping tour.

5] Crinkle Crags

Camp anywhere above the level of the highest fell wall, that is above 440m and you are safe. You have over 400m of the stretch to camp in. You are at an optimum distance from Eskdale to have your quiet time but also easily get there if you want to. You get to climb the Scafell Pike from this location.

Enjoy you UK camping expeditions in these wild sites but stay safe.
