Great roads in the UK

Recommended Posts

Took my car out for a drive along the black mountain pass (A4069) through the Brecon Beacons yesterday.  The twisty road, the scenery, the mist and the rain, the way the car handled, hardly any other cars, it was just great.


What great roads are there in the UK that you'd recommend?

Here's some photos, the Brecon Beacons are picturesque anyway but they're pretty dramatic when the rain comes in:

Great pictures! We drove through the Beacons last year, on our way back from Ireland. We didn't do the A4069, but the A470 and surroundings was great as well.

On the way up I made a detour in Snowdonia and did the Evo-triangle. I enjoyed that even more, both the roads and the scenery. Since that trip, heel-toeing has become a natural habit. 😎


I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

 Love the A470, most of the roads from mid to north Wales are pretty good and come with great views. Never done the Evo triangle so that is definitely on the list of ones to try next. 

The black mountain pass is only 20 minutes from my house so was planning on making that a monthly excursion.

I'm from the Aberystwyth area originally, and there are some great driving roads around there:

A44 from Aberystwyth to Llangurig if you can find a quiet time to drive it.

The mountain road from Rhayader to Devil's Bridge is also a challenging drive with spectacular views as well as the road from Devil's Bridge through Pontrhydfendigaid to Tregaron

At this time of year they should be pretty quiet early morning
