    Britain has some very pretty countryside. However, while it is lush and wonderful, it isn't quite on the same scale as some places in Asia/Europe/America/Africa. It's only little.

    However, I love the British countryside.

    What do you mean by "the same scale"?

    Yes I think Britain has some fantastic scenery. If you ever get the chance, I'd recommend you take a drive from Stirling -> Fort William -> Inverness -> Ullapool in Scotland. The range of scenery is impressive and Glencoe and Loch Ness are particularly breathtaking. I'm also fond of the final drive in to Ullapool along Loch Broom.
    My favourite drive is Inverness-Perth. Driving along that when the snow is falling and the roads are quiet and it's just starting to get dark is incredible.

    Sillyfencer, where is that? It looks very similar to Loch Avon in the cairngorms, but the shape looks wrong.


    I love the scenery in london, or other big cities. It's a big contrast to where I grew up, everything is so big, so modern and so fast paced. I love it.

    Britain has great scenery. I don't like the fields and rolling bumps of south england, but north scotland is excellent.

    And I know what people mean by the scale, it doesn't have waterfalls the size of icelandic ones, or mountains the size of the alps, but it's still excellent.

    Of course it does. Anyone who says otherwise just hasn't been to the right places.

    (I am resisting the temptation to post a whole bundle of holiday photos as evidence on the grounds that the photo thing has already been done.)

    Just a couple of random Cairngorm pics. It could be Avon, but it's hard to tell from that angle.

    Ah, I searched for that picture, and it is Avon. Just never seen it from that angle.

    I was being sloppy.

    I meant that scenery in Britain is fairly small, compared to the valleys/gorges/rivers/mountains of many larger bodies of land

    Yes, but the scenery in France and the Mediterranean regions is much better.

    Yes! I love our countryside. I live in Norfolk, so I'm not exactly surrounded by rolling hills and the such, but I still love it.

    Although I went to Switzerland last year, the scenery there is amaaazing! Sadly lost all the pictures in a tragic PC death, but oh well.

    Bloody brilliant... the Lake District is also pretty spectacular too, from what I've heard.

    Incidentally, see that mountain on the second photo... I've climbed that, so I have. :p:

    Edit: Hmm... just realised what the first one was... I've been up that as well, I think.

    Britain has some impressive scenery, but it is nothing to New Zealand, it's like what I imagine heaven to be like, if i believed heaven existed.
