The sun has finally come out which means its officially BBQ season. ​Even if you have a back garden, venturing further afield can be an exciting experience for the whole family. Here's 4 of the most scenic places to have an outdoor BBQ in the UK this summer.​

1. Loch Lomond, Scotland


Bask in the sunshine on the shores of Scotland’s largest freshwater loch.

With its tree-lined beaches and stunning views of Trossachs National Park, it’s a gorgeous location for an outdoor BBQ. Park byelaws permit you to have a BBQ as long as it doesn’t cause any damage.

If you don’t have your own equipment, Loch Lomond Leisure can provide everything you need.

For a beach BBQ, head to Constantine Bay in Cornwall.

It’s the perfect place to kick off your shoes and relax as you watch surfers take on the waves.

As one of the most popular BBQ spots in the UK, you won’t be the only one dining al fresco.

Before hitting the beach, be sure to stock up on locally caught fish and artisan breads in the town of Padstow.

3. Derwent Water, Lake District

Admire stunning views and cook up a storm at one of the free BBQ facilities at Derwent Water. You can find the BBQ facilities in one of the many lakeside parking lots.

After you’ve grilled your sausages, head down to the nearby beaches for stunning views.
