At the suggestion of mikeknipe in a previous thread, I've kicked off a poll to find out what the members think is "The Best View in Britain".

You don't need to include a photo of your choice - but obviously that would be ideal. See here for information on how to post pictures in posts.
http://www.forum.walkingplaces.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=8

Once all the suggestions are offered, I'll turn the thread into a proper Voting Poll topic and we can vote.

So suggestions below (as replies to this topic) for Britain's Best View.

There are so many to choose from but this is the one that never fails to take my breath away. It is the view from Gars-bheinn at the start of the Cuillin Ridge:

Glencoe is my favourite but following just behind is :

I suppose I should nominate Wasdale as I posted it up - it is a marvellous view though

W&B, I can just see the hobbits peeking out from the trees in the middle distance. Gandolf can't be far away.

If ever a picture epitomises Britain and middle earth, that one does.

Lovely!

I'm not sure I've got a favourite, or could name a "best" view. the Wasdale one is a classic, of course, and Yomper's Glencoe is too.
I'm a bit miffed that I haven't got a copy of the Glen Etive view - which does look a bit like the Wasdale one, except that the hills are a bit bigger....
I'll wait for a full list and then cast my vote....

Not amongst the giants of our hills,but it is an icon of the Cleveland Hills and Teesside,and it is my favourite landmark:Roseberry Topping.

A fantastic photo, Yomper. This is the same place from a different angle and with a totally different atmosphere.

I loved Yomper's Old Man of Storr. Light and color is fantastic. John's photo has a dark, mysterious, brooding quality. Of course, I had no idea where it was, so had to google it. What a surprise.

Hello all,

Although my experience of Britain is has been limited since I live far away, I have to go with Rambling Pete's choice of Wasdale/Wastwater.

I altered the first few days of our Coast to Coast itinerarly in 2008 just to get that view, and we were richly rewarded on a beautiful, clear evening. I'll not forget it.

Ken

P.S.: If we ever do the Coast to Coast again, we'll certainly do it via Wasdale again!
