4 Amazing UK Walks to Keep You Active in 2019
11 January 2019
It’s a new year which means it’s time to start 2019 the right way – by improving your fitness and getting healthy!
If you’re not a big fan of working out in a gym, or don’t have the space at home to exercise, the great outdoors is waiting for you.
A county walk is a great way to get active while taking in breathtaking scenery – something we're not short of in the UK! Here’s a selection of some of the best long walks in Britain.
Kynance Cove & Lizard Point, Cornwall
A stunning circular walk that visits the gorgeous Kynance Cove and Lizard Point, which is the most southerly area on the British mainland.
The scenery, wildlife and geology makes this route an incredible journey and provides a worthwhile ending, full of fabulous views from the coast.
This walk is approximately 5.8 miles, though, and could take around 2 and a half hours, so you’ll need to be well kitted out to last.
Fife Coastal Path, Scotland
A scenic linear route from Buckhaven to Ravenscraig Park in Kirkcaldy, the Fife Coastal Path is a prime location for walkers north of the border.
This 6.6 mile walk features many points of historical interest and the views throughout are stunning.
It can get a little breezy this time of year, so you'll want to wrap up well to keep the chill out. The Tonetime Navy Jacket is ideal for this type of brisk walk.
Pen-y-Fan, Powys, Wales
This is a challenging walk, but if you’re feeling up to it you’ll be rewarded with some incredible scenery and views for miles.
Taking you over spectacular high mountain terrain with views to Shropshire and south to Exmoor, this walk provides a real challenge to novice walkers. It features unsurfaced tracks and grassy mountain paths, with some steep, rocky sections too, so make sure you're well prepared with the right kit before you set off.
Once you’re at the summit though, it's well worth it.
Brimham Rocks (The Druids’ Playground), North Yorkshire
If you’re a lover of rock formations and want to get out and about to shed some pounds, then this 9.3 mile walk around The Druids’ Playground is a fascinating one.
This route approaches the Brimham Rocks via a delightful waterside path along the river southeast from Pateley Bridge.
B&M Top Tip: Remember you might be out and about all day, so make sure you have a good breakfast before you set off. Our Mo Protein Wheat Biscuits, will give you a great start! And why not take a Caramel Crisp Protein Bar with you for a mid-walk treat?
