A day of scenic beauty as we travel to one of the remotest areas of Scotland. Applecross is a World away in its pace of life, perfect for those seeking beaches, walks and wildlife.
Visit Lochcarron which sits on the banks of the loch that shares its name. This idyllic village will set the scene for the rest of our day together. Next we explore the stunning Applecross Peninsula with a journey over the Bealach na Ba, an epic mountain road that climbs to over 2,000 feet! Relax in the tranquil surroundings of Applecross before returning to Inverness along the banks of Loch Torridon and through the Ben Eighe National Nature Reserve.
Our journey commences with a drive across the Black Isle to Garve and the village of Achnasheen beyond. Our first stop will be in the pleasant village of Lochcarron, which sits on Loch Carron. We’ll take a detour to Ardarroch where there are good views over Loch Kishorn to the mountains on the opposite shore.Next we make the dramatic climb over the Bealach nam Ba, which means the Pass of the Cattle, in Gaelic. The Pass is the third highest road in Britain and climbs to over 2,000 feet (600 m)! We’ll stop at the summit for breathtaking views across to Raasay and the Isle of Skye (weather permitting!) before commencing our descent to Applecross Village.
