UK’s best wild beauty spots revealed by MINI

MINI Countryman

MINI UK has discovered the Top 10 wildest beauty locations in the UK, helping Countryman owners beat the busiest spots for an off the beaten track adventure this summer.

From waterways to peaks and underground caves, more than 100 nature-based destinations were identified and judged against two sets of criteria – popularity and wildness. The average of these scores then determined the best, undiscovered and wild hidden gems of 2021.

Taking the number one spot is Uyea in Shetland, Scotland, an uninhabited island which lies off the Northmavine peninsula and is only accessible at low tide. There are several natural arches along its rocky coastline and challenging rock climbs, making it the perfect destination for the avid adventurer.
