This great piece of road was travelled by Twitter follower Andy Forde @hightower150 on a 750 mile round trip in March 2013. Andy commented that the scenery was stunning and that the drive made him smile. Need I say more!

This scenic route is along the A4059 that winds through part of the Brecon Beacons beautiful landscape.

The road is a twisty route with plenty of gradients in it and some fantastic views, with a cattle grid at either end there is a good chance of seeing a sheep grazing at the side of the road and even a wild pony or two so it is advisible to go steady through this area.

The views of the mountains along this road are amazing and in March when we went they were capped with a good amount of snow to make them look even more spectacular.

This was our first visit to the Brecon Beacons area and I have to say there are a lot of excellent roads around there but this one did stand out for all the reasons above and we would definitely recommend it.
