The UK’s most amazing natural wonders have been named and Scotland gets an entry. With plenty of wild scenery and beautiful nature, Scotland could have claimed more than one wonder.

Loch Coruisk was the winner, however.

Located on the Isle of Skye, the loch can be accessed by boat from Elgol or on foot from Camasunary or Sligachan.

The views over Loch Coruisk from Sgùrr na Strì have been named some of the best in Britain.

The loch, nestled under Black Cuillins, is a popular destination for holidaymakers.

Loch Coruisk is separated from the sea by the shortest river in Britain, Scavaig River, only a few metres long.

The loch has inspired many artists over the years, from Sir Walter Scott to J. M. W. Turner.

On Tripadvisor, Adrian G said: “A piece of heaven.

“Loch Coruisk is nestled in the Cullins with dramatic scenery all round along with some great wildlife sightings.”

Matt wrote: “Go – enjoy its beauty and how remote it is. Don’t tell anyone else or it might be spoiled!

“It’s inaccessible unless you hike for about four hours or take a boat trip.

“Utterly magnificent!”

And Sorana M said: “The scenery is breathtaking.

“It is a must see and do if you are in the area. Don’t miss it.”

Clive G climbed Sgùrr na Strì and was confronted with “one of the finest views in these Isles.

“I’ve been climbing hills in England, Scotland and Wales for more than 40 years, and have seen many stunning views – its why I keep doing it.

“However, I can honestly say there are few more breathtaking views than this.”
