In 2013 after we had visited Plockton, we made our way to Applecross. Everyone had told us that if we were up this far in the Scottish Highlands, Applecross was a must. Well the pass that takes you up into the mountains is ‘The Bealach na Ba’, in English, ‘Pass of the Cattle’, it rises to 2,053ft in height from sea level in about five miles, and is the most spectacular pass in Scotland. It also provides some of the most challenging driving in the country. It is single track throughout and the warning signs at its foot, including one deterring learner drivers, and caravans….we were in a motorhome, all I can say is never again. The views are breathtaking, but although there are passing points, these were car size, not large motorhome size and for someone who is not happy up a ladder, it was hard going. When we got to the top, of course there were motor homes galore in the car park. We decided not to come back down, but drive right the way around the peninsula and I am so glad we did, we saw some of the most beautiful landscapes that you can see in Scotland.
