Recommended places in the UK

Anyone have any recommended places to fly in the UK. I'll be doing 18 hours in a c152 as part of a license conversion.

A cool place to see from the air are the White Cliffs of Dover. Then obviously Scotland is a stunning place to fly. Depends where you are from.

Agree, Scotland is brilliant. Loch Lomond is stunning and Oban is a popular destination to fly to. Check out Campbeltown as well, although I believe they don't have avgas, so plan accordingly. Also check out Hawarden in north Wales. If you go on a weekday, you might spot the Beluga.

Also bear in mind some of the more isolated spots in Scotland do not have cafes on site, so bring your own lunch!

If going to Oban (which I'd recommend) also take the short flight from there to Glenforsa on the Isle of Mull, which I'd recommend even more.
