In Brief: Other fun high roads to consider in UK

Posted by Pamela Eve on June 4, 2017.

Other fun high roads, closer to home, to consider (UK):

 

Drives in Europe - Old Military Road - flickr: Glen Wallace

Old Military Road, Scottish Highlands: A83 (in the Cairngorms National Park), Blairgowrie to Aberdeen.

Wonderful remote scenery, amazing hills and bends.

 

Drives in Europe - Pass of the cattle to Applecross - flickr: H.L.I.T.

Pass of the Cattle to Applecross, Scotland: Through the Applecross peninsula mountains to the sea.

Narrow, twisting, steep sections with fantastic scenery all around. Don’t rush; REQUIRES GREAT CARE!

 

Drives in Europe - Penrith in Cumbria to Haydon Bridge - flickr: Bryn Pinzgauer

Penrith in Cumbria to Haydon Bridge, Northumberland: A686. Traverses the Pennines ‘on the top of England’.

Spectacular moorland scenery, steep gradients and sweeping bends.

Capel Curig to Caernarfon (Caenarvon): A4086 – The Llanberis Pass.

Incorporates bends and gradients of varying intensity, and passes through beautiful scenery.

Great for the driver and passengers alike; take your time – savour the journey.
