Loch Lomond has been picked amongst one of the UK's favourite views by railway passengers.

The scenic and natural beauty contributed to the area being picked in the top 15 places considered "Britain's Most Stunning Views".

However, the number one spot belonged to an area a little north of Lomond.

It is a location known worldwide for its atmosphere and occasionally monsterous appearance, the stunning vista of Loch Ness in the Highlands.

People travelling with London North Eastern railway (LNER) rated the iconic waterway the most pictuaresque site in Britian. 

The Loch was a number of Scottish scenes singled out by passengers - who also rated Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh, the Three Sisters in Glencoe and Ben Nevis. 

People who took part in the survey shared images of their favourite views, which have now been made public by LNER.

In England, the White Cliffs of Dover, York Minster and the Angel of the North all made the cut.

According to the research, two thirds of Britons have desperately missed being able to visit UK beauty spots during the past year.

More than half plan to travel to UK locations as soon as restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so.

The research also found that 77 percent of Brits hoping to holiday this summer are intending to take a UK staycation.

Unsurprisingly, six in 10 (61 percent) of the people polled admitted they have found UK-based travel restrictions over the past 12 months to be frustrating.

David Horne, Managing Director at LNER, said: “It’s clear to see that as a nation we’re proud to be home to some amazing views, ranging from natural beauty like Loch Ness and the Yorkshire Dales to great cities like London and York.

"Although restrictions are in place for now, it is not difficult to see why so many of us will be looking to explore the beauty of Britain once it is safe to do so.

“When people can travel again, it is pleasing to see that the staycation should return thanks to the ease of travelling around the UK, and an enjoyable, safe journey being a key priority."
