Enjoy a day of scenic beauty as you travel to one of the remotest areas of Scotland-the Applecross Peninsula. This inspiring day trip takes you through some of the country's most spectacular scenery and is a perfect way to escape from the stresses of modern life.
To the Black Isle and Beyond...
Your trip to the beautiful Applecross Penninsula starts with a drive across the scenic Black Isle. Your first stop is 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 to the mountains on its opposite shore.
Enjoy Views to the Isle of Skye...
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.
Down to Applecross..
Applecross is a beautiful village situated on a sweeping bay. Here you can spend time enjoying the spectacular seascape or finding out more about the checkered history of the Highlands at the local heritage centre. At Applecross wildlife abounds, so nature lovers can look out for red deer, pine martens(one of the rarest of British mammals) and otters.
Through the Heart of Wild Scotland..
From Applecross you'll make your way along the banks of Loch Torridonto Shieldaig where you'll make a further stop before travelling through the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve. This is Britain's first National Nature Reserve and home to ancient pine woods and soaring golden eagles. You'll then travel onwards to Kinlochewe and Achnasheen, from where you'll retrace your steps home to Inverness.
