There is no other feeling like being wrapped in your sleeping bag, the sunlight streaming through the tent and birdsong drifting through the air…

For many of us camping in the mountains is a chance to escape the pressures of everyday life and think about what life is really about. No cacophony of traffic or four walls surrounding us; just us and the hills…

We have collected a selection of amazing photographs taken by keen campers who have pitched their tents in stunning locations across the UK. For more stunning photos from each contributor click on their name.
