Game: Name that road!

    (Inspired by a thread over on OutdoorsChat to name views from/of mountains)

    The object of the game is to identify where a photograph was taken. It should be taken on a bike ride which you did on a public road in the UK. It would be nice if it featured you and/or your riding companion(s) and/or your bike(s) but don't worry about that if you just took a snap of the scenery, interesting building, bridge, whatever. (It's not that I don't like seeing photos from round the world but we really don't stand much chance of identifying (for example) a dirt road to a small temple in Vietnam!)

    I prefer country roads but if it is your turn to post the photo then you can decide for yourself whether to feature a backstreet in Cardiff (whatever/wherever)!

    The named winner of the current round should go on to post a picture of him/her or by him/her taken on a bike ride somewhere in the UK. There should be something in the picture which would allow the location to be identified. Try and choose something not too obvious but not too obscure either (we do want to be able to identify the location without too many clues!).

    Choose a nice view with an interesting bridge/church/statue/landscape/(whatever) feature.

    PS Rename your photo before uploading if its filename identifies the location!

    I'll go first and will select the winner once the scene has been identified ...

    Where was this photo taken?

    Yes, but try to identify the road itself and not just the country - ha ha!

    No more clues until tomorrow afternoon to see if anybody can work it out without any further help ... :okay:

    Loch Marie and that is Slioch hiding under the clouds.

    or may be Loch Linnhe and that is the Ben under the cloud

    @Reiver has it with the second guess! It was taken on the A681 on the west side of Loch Linnhe looking NE towards Fort William and yes, that is Ben Nevis up in the clouds.

    Over to you, Reiver!

    No problem!

    @Eddy, even though you were wrong, it was a decent guess - do you fancy going next?

    OK, but at least I made a correct starter for 10. Not a clue otherwise

    Where were we? (If you want to narrow it down, guess the area first. You shouldn't need much help to work THAT out!)

    I'd have to put some serious time in with a map to narrow it down much further.

    Indeed, it IS somewhere in the Yorkshire Dales!

    If you don't know that dale then checking out maps and Street view will help you find it.

    There are other ways, but they would be considered cheating! :whistle:

    I shall refrain from answering this one unless you say so Colin ;-) (?) Were I to, I would tend to consider myself to be cheating.
