Can you hear it? The unzipping of a sleeping bag, crackling fires and chirping crickets. It's the distinctive call of the wild. Telling us its time to dust of our tents and get out into the British countryside. Inspired by our wild camping feature inside issue 10, we've picked out five of our favourite sites in Britain for an adventure under canvas.
* Note Scotland and Dartmoor are the only places to legally wild camp in Britain. If you wish to set up tent anywhere else, always seek permission from the landowner first.
Heather clad moorland, wide open spaces - Dartmoor is the perfect place for wild camping. The right to wild camping is actually enshrined in the National Parks & Access to the Countryside Act, and the local association even provide a guide on where to pitch up in the area. Just watch out for the army - who often use the park for fire practice.
2. The Scottish highlands
Remote, with high peaks and stunning views. The current access legislation is explicit about your right to wild camp on hill land as long as the camping rules are followed.
3. Lake District
The woodlands, the lakes, the fells, idyllic. Legally wherever you camp you must have the permission of a landowner to camp on their land, though there is a tradition of wild camping in the Lake District.
4. Berwyn Mountains
The Berwyn mountains, North Wales. Some absolutely spectacular views, not for the faint of heart though if you believe the rumours of the suspected UFO landing.
Easily accessible places like Springhead Hill make this is good beginner's territory as you won't be far from civilisation if things go tent-up.
