The Applecross Peninsula is a haven of tranquillity just as its Gaelic name of ‘a Chomraich’ (The Sanctuary) suggests. There are only two roads that access Applecross and both of them have outstanding views. If you are travelling the North Coast 500 you will be taking the Bealach na Bà to Applecross and returning on the coastal road via Shieldaig. This way you get the best of both worlds. The Bealach na Bà takes you high up on a very steep winding single track road that you will never forget. Stop at the car park at the top and get an unforgettable view over Loch Kishorn to Skye, Rum and the Outer Hebrides. There are so many reasons to visit Applecross – the views, beaches, sunsets, music, food or the hospitality.
