    Gospel Pass, already mentioned, but the location is SO 23681 34932
    It is a stunner

    and leads south past Llanthony Priory:

    Too shiny and clean to use it properly.

    Please reply GrinningGser!!

    GrinningGser, hello there!

    Did a click on your link "Gospel Pass" and.... lovely stuff.

    But what is this?

    I get 'bdcc.co.uk' in the 'properties' of your link and that allows me to access all the maps for UK. Especially the OS maps at 1:50 000.
    Great for me planning routes.
    Nearest I get to this are small snippets of the OS maps on 'Streetmap.co.uk'

    Why should I get this sort of access?? Through your link????

    For passes etc, Applecross, Bealach Na Ba gets my vote for more scenic but the Wrynose, Snake pass for sheer technical riding (esp in the wet and thick fog!!)

    But here's another Craig O'Mount, East of the famous Spittal of Glenshee, but West of Aberdeen. Some nice hairpins, not many, not steep, but a nice wee part of the world. Edzell to Aboyne
    Pop in on Queenie for a cuppa at Balmoral when you get over...........

    Just don't ask for me...........

    Here's what I mean.....lovely rolling countryside, lots of bends and... yea this is Scotland...no traffic...bliss!

    oh yes there was a guy doing this at the top and this was last wknd in September. Those were the days of global warming!

    Not like now. -20 C at Braemar!!!

    It's not my link, I saw it on this site and it works superbly. It is a caving club and uses Google maps but has greater detail , 1:50,000 ,than usually available on Google Maps or for that matter
    any other public mapping site that I have seen

    Good for printing maps also.
    It is probably a backdoor into a non public site.

    Right click on a location and copy the link

    Even more useful is that the link uses british national grid

    So copy the final SO ***** ***** straight to your zumo and insert a couple of spaces , i.e. **space*****space ***** for a Britsh National Grid waypoint

    If you want to make routes on 1:50000 (downloadable for GPS use) then this is better:
    http://www.bikehike.co.uk/mapview.php

    X marks the spot is good for just browsing the map and well, for X marking the spot you are on about.

    The link is

    p.s. thanks Adam, another thing to learn !

    Not really a pass but I love the road between Hutton le Hole and Castleton on the North York moors. Ten miles of nice, although not particularly challenging, road across some of the highest bits of the moors and along Blakey Ridge looking down into Rosedale and Farndale and with 30-40 mile views when the weather's good.
