Life in England isn't all that bad... when it stops raining.
Dumfries & Galloway is fast becoming one of my favourite places in the U.K. because there are next to no people there!
When I first obtained a camper van I headed for the highlands of Scotland. I love the mountain regions of the U.K. and I especially love the Scottish wilds. As a bonus you can pretty much camp anywhere as long as you don't obstruct the highway.
It's only a short walk from the 'Matlock Bath' car park along the main road and then over a bridge and through a tunnel to the cable car station! There are some very imposing cliffs along the way to keep you entertained! The ride to the top in the cable car is pretty spectacular but over in 5 minutes if you are not too keen!
All of the mountains surrounding lake Derwent are spectacular, especially on a sunny summers day such as this one!
