Landscape photography is constantly growing in popularity, and it’s no surprise why. Humans have an intrinsic love of the outdoors, and the sprawling urbanisation is causing more and more people to crave the quieter areas of the world.
The United Kingdom, and especially England, has the highest population density in Europe at the moment. There are 395 people for every square kilometre, and with over 90% of those living in urban areas it’s understandable that people are looking to escape the hustle and bustle.
Fortunately, despite it’s small island status and huge population density, there are still many areas of the UK that classify as rural. Furthermore, it has one of the most varied landscapes in Europe and can offer anything from dramatic seascapes to cliff-laden mountainscapes. The opportunity is endless, but it’s difficult to know where to start.
That’s what we’re here for, and here are our top six locations in the UK for landscape photography, covering every country in the UK!
Isle of Skye – Scottish Highlands
What list of top landscape photography locations would be complete without mentioning the Isle of Skye? Yes, the cliche shots have been done to death and tourism in the area is higher than ever, but I always advocate taking those cliche and often taken photographs because they’re photographed a lot for a good reason!
