Ok, So not Scotland - but if you visit the lakes, and fancy a challenge, then try Wrynose and Hardknott Passes. Very steep and narrow, and fabulous views.

Yup, been there, done that a few times. Not in the 5 though :(. A route with well earned notoriety.

Did it in a Panda. No brakes for the last half mile due to overheating :shock:

Was passenger in a Vauxhall Cavalier fully loaded with 4 adults for a hillwalking weekend. Nice smell of cooked clutch.
