Christmas is a time of the year that can cause a lot of stress – whether you have lots to prepare for, or family feuds, it is important to be able to take time away from all of that to ease the pressure on yourself.
Walking is not only beneficial for your body, but it can also help to soothe the stress on your mind too. Being out in nature is a magical and relaxing experience, and even in the winter, wrap up warm and head out and about.
One of the best places to walk in the UK is Largs – not only are there lots of things to do in Largs but also plenty of beautiful surrounding countryside for you to enjoy a walk in. Here are three places to go to where you can enjoy a walk and some peace and quiet…
Ness Den – Head into the woods on this beautiful walk. Make your way through the forests and over bridges to marvel in the beautiful landscape. It is a great walk to enjoy on a clear night as the skies here are clear and bright, so a fantastic spot for astronomy.
Castle Hill – if you are looking for a winter walk that really gets the heart going, then head to castle hill. You will also be rewarded with a fantastic view from the top, as well as a burial chamber over 5000 years old!
Lugar Water – For a bit of birdwatching and some tranquil waterside scenery, then here is the place to go. There are many water birds, such as dippers that can be seen here.
