Mountain road in Cwm Tywi, Powys
The former drover's road between Abergwesyn and Tregaron descends here along the western side of the valley. The road was only surfaced (I think) in the 1960s, and is now a tortuous (and popular) drivers' route, impassable in icy conditions, or when the Afon Irfon is in flood. Drivers, enjoy the view ... at your peril. :-)

See that track in the centre of the image? That is a forestry road which also leads to another drover route to Strata Florida. The road to Tregaron passes to the left by that isolated far rowan tree by the forestry road.
