Wrynose Pass leading onto the Hardknott Pass in Cumbria. Interesting scenery in good weather, but the Hardknott Pass gets butterflies into my stomach every time at a couple of points as it is incredibly steep with some very tricky little corners where you definitely DO NOT want to encounter other traffic.

I love being right. If only it happened more often...
