Dolwyddelan Castle, Snowdonia (By Mavic2Pro)

Llanberis Pass (A4086) (By Mavic2Pro)

Beautiful but rugged location. Park in car park at top of pass, along the road or in Llanberis (and get the shuttle bus). Mountains, streams, bridges, cliffs - amazing.

Lowgill Viaduct, South Lakeland (By CSB73)

Lowgill Viaduct was built in 1859 by Joseph Locke. It has been disused for years and is now classed as listed. Parking around here is limited so could be tricky. There is a small layby under one of the arches so this is a possibility if you are lucky. I flew on a windy day so couldn't get much altitude with the quad. Also both the M6 and the West Coast mainline are close by but shouldn't be a concern if flying responsibly.

Leaderfoot, Melrose, Scottish Borders (By Drumsagard)

From the small car park just off the A68 walk down to the viewpoint at the old Drygrange Bridge. From their go through the gate on the old minor road on your left which leads up the hill to the Trimontium Roman site. My TOAL spot was at the edge of the minor road (closed to traffic and is now a public footpath) at the Trimontium information board.
