What to expect

Your trip to the beautiful Applecross Peninsula starts with a drive across the scenic Black Isle. Your first stop will be the lovely village of Lochcarron, which sits beside Loch Carron - undoubtedly one of the gems of the North Western Highlands of Scotland. You’ll then travel to Ardarroch to enjoy the stunning views over Loch Kishorn and onto the mountains on its opposite shore. Your journey continues with a dramatic climb over the Bealach nam Ba (the Pass of the Cattle, in Gaelic). The Pass is the third highest road in Britain and climbs to over 2,000 feet! You’ll stop at the summit for breathtaking views across to Raasay and the Isle of Skye, before commencing the descent to Applecross Village.

Applecross is a beautiful village situated on a sweeping bay. Here, you will have some time at your disposal to enjoy the spectacular seascape, and find out more about the checkered history of the Highlands at the local heritage centre. Applecross is a spectacle of wildlife, so nature lovers can look out for red deer, pine martens (one of the rarest of British mammals) and otters. From here, you will make your way along the banks of Loch Torridon and head to Shieldaig where you will make a short stop before travelling through the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve. This is Britain’s first National Nature Reserve and is home to ancient pine woods and soaring golden eagles. You’ll then travel onwards to Kinlochewe and Achnash.
