Heading out and about for a walk this winter is one of the best things that you can do for your mind and body – after a depressing and uncertain year, getting closer to the beauty of nature can calm the mind and restore the body.
One of natures greatest joys is the waterfall – and here are some of the best places to go if you are in search of one of these stunning sights – don’t forget to wrap up warm – snug aran jumpers are the best attire at this time of the year – if you want an aran sweater click here – and don’t forget a comfy pair of walking boots!
Kinder Downfall – This waterfall on the edge of Kinder Scout in the Peak District is stunning at any time of the year – but a visit in the winter months will reveal it in all of its glory. The low temperatures here can cause natural ice sculptures to form around it, and if you see it when there is a strong westerly windy, you may not believe your eyes as the water appears to flow upwards.
Hollow Brook – This wild stretch of Exmoor coastline has some of the steepest cliff edge drops in Britain – and flowing down from the great height of 210 metres is the Great Hangman waterfall – it is truly a spectacular sight and shows the immense power of nature.
Glenariff Forest Park – Head over to the Emerald Isle to see one of the most stunning of Northern Irelands nine Glens of Antrim. Meander your way through the beautiful park to where two rivers meet and see for yourself the stream of waterfalls cascading through this glorious countryside.
