The Bennan Hillviewpoint located off the A762 road and the Raiders Road. Uphill circular walk to viewpoint is 2.5km which has interpretative boards and a 'summer seat', overlooks Loch Ken and the surrounding mosaic of pasture and woodlands, providing a true birds-eye view of the area. It is reached by a choice of atmospheric woodland paths, which give a real flavour of western Scottish conifer forests, though there is also a strong broadleaved element on the steeper slopes. The Secret Cages are reached from an offshoot of the longer route. Bennan Viewpoint offers an unrivalled panorama of the area and the opportunity for some stimulating exercise; and, who knows, one might just see a kite, too!
Beacon Hill Viewpoint is the most well-known sight in Lickey Hills Country Park is Beacon Hill. The panoramic views of the surrounding countryside reach for kilometers all around, as the mountain rises over 300 meters above sea level. There is a tiny fort at the top with a display pointing out the direction of noteworthy landscape elements that may be observed. The vista is especially impressive on a clear day.
Gazing west, you can see all the way to Wales, while looking north, you can see Client and Waseley Hills. If you look east, you'll see Birmingham, Cannock Chase, and Barr Beacon. You may even see Bardon Hill in Leicestershire from time to time. The view to the south is now obscured by trees, although one could formerly see as far as the Cotswolds.
Rough Tor, Cornwall Viewpoint is one of the greatest spots to obtain a panoramic perspective of gloomy Bodmin Moor and its semi-wild ponies, since it is topped by an eighty-ton, rolling granite boulder known as the Logan Rock. Rough Tor, at 400m, is 20m shorter than Cornwall's tallest mountain, Brown Willy (one mile distant), but we believe it provides a superior outlook. A memorial to WWII troops stands at the top, and the nearest parking park is a mile and a half away.
Holme Moss is a unique viewpoint situated immediately above the Peak District National Park. It is within an area designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and contains species of local/rare interest including an unusual species of wallflower, Erysimum cheiri. The Holme Moss viewpoint sits on a step of Millstone Grit and provides a very fine viewpoint across the magnificent Howgills.
Whinlatter Pass Viewpoint can be found just off the B5329, near to the village of Lorton. To find the viewpoint from East Keswick, take a ride up Fell Lane before parking at the viewpoint. The opening times are somewhat irregular , so it's important to look at signs whenever you arrive. This is just one of the superb viewpoints around the Lake District National Park.
Millbeck 360 Viewpoint is found in the Millbeck area of Kendal. This viewpoint, like several others nearby, provides a very different view over the town and surrounding countryside . To find the viewpoint, head along Millbeck Lane to its junction with Millbeck Lane East, then park in the small car park to enter the area. To gain the full panorama, sit on the wall that runs around the viewpoint; this gives terrific views over Ulverston. Probably one of the best viewpoints around Kendal.
Colthouse 360 Viewpoint is also situated in the Lake District National Park and it looks out over the surrounding countryside.

Parking is also available 500 meters away in a small car park that lies at the end of Mill beck Lane.
