  • If you love to drive and want to try something different then this is one that should be on your list of drives. Amazing scenery and breathtaking views along the route but not for the faint hearted with its narrow steep roads and tight hairpin bends. For the experienced driver, beginners be warned.
  • Unlike many other reviewers, I'm giving the Bealach Na Ba viewpoint 4 stars instead of 5. Here is my point of view: Well, if you are an adventurer by nature, someone who is full of adrenaline and you have no fear of heights whatsoever, then by all means make that trip through the huge mountain high up to the viewpoint. But if you are flinched from a wild adventure then spare yourself the headache. To be honest, the viewpoint for itself on the very top of the mountain, is not that amazing as I was expecting, especially after such a long hazardous drive up the mountain. Don't get me wrong, the viewpoint is beautiful but it's not amazing. Personally I had more enjoyment from the actual drive on the steep and narrow road to the viewpoint, than from the viewpoint itself, while on the road itself the view was even more spectacular than the from viewpoint above. With that being said; you should be aware that the drive up and down the mountain to the viewpoint and back is quite dangerous. The road is very narrow and tortuous and in most cases without any fences or proper railing. Our vehicle (range rover) was actually wider from the road and take in consideration that this is a two way drive. I myself was enjoying the tension and the adrenaline taking me over while driving that road up to the viewpoint. but I believe that it isn't for every one and certainly not enough just for the scenery that you get to see on top at the viewpoint itself. The way up and down the mountain is really amazing and breath taking.
