One of the most magnificent views at this time of year can be seen at the Pass of Killiecrankie in Perthshire. This wooded gorge (pictured) on the River Garry is associated with an historic Jacobite battle, but today it is a peaceful place where visitors have the chance to spot birds, red squirrels, leaping salmon and, in autumn, a variety of trees turn spectacular shades of burgundy, amber, russet and gold.
Grizedale Forest, Cumbria
Or go wild in Grizedale Forest, Cumbria, where the Ridding Wood trail offers stunning views of the valley, and a hike to the top of Carron Crag reveals panoramic vistas of this unspoilt landscape with its heady mix of autumn colours.
The Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire
Formerly used as a royal hunting forest and a site of industry in Victorian times, the evidence can still be found amongst the maze of trees. From Symons Yat Rock, spot the River Wye, concealed by crunchy leaves and towering trees this season.
