did it in the 50's in 2009 and again 2018 views are breathtaking and ample carpark space at the top. Road is quite narrow and camper vans will have fun!

This is a testing drive up and over a mountain. Very windy road which, for the most part, is single track. Would suggest anyone thinks of taking a caravan or motor home up and over - too many hairpin bends. Not great for the driver...More

A single track road that requires a degree of care, especially in wet or misty conditions. Plenty of passing places, use them with care and courtesy to others - no overtaking!
