To celebrate 70 years of the UK’s national parks being protected areas of beauty, a lifestyle blog has created a number of animated travel posters depicting the regions.
Scotland’s national parks are featured in the tribute, including Cairngorms and Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.
The 1949 National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act was established to ensure the UK’s national parks were officially protected areas of beauty for all to enjoy.
The act created a framework for the fifteen national parks across the UK, focussing on conservation, the creation and maintenance of public paths, and “preserving and enhancing natural beauty.”
The posters, created in the style of iconic travel posters promoting US national parks in the 1900s, have been creating by UK frugal living blog Onward.
The posters have been created as animated voxel (volumetric pixel) works of art.
Cairngorms National Park in the Scottish Highlands is the UK’s largest national park, and covers twice the area of the Lake District.
Five of Scotland’s six highest mountains can be found here, with 52 summits that exceed 900 metres (2,950 feet).
The twin arches in the voxel poster are Carrbridge (in the foreground) and Linn o’ Dee.
Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park poster features Inverary Castle and the Falls of Falloch, a highlight of the West Highland Way, Scotland’s most poular walking trail.
