Day 1 - Applecross

We started our holiday at Applecross camp site. Applecross is located in Wester Ross on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands. It is accessible by only 2 roads. The original road is called the Pass of the Cattle, or Bealach nam Bo in Gaelic, which is the highest pass in Scotland and until 1976 when the coastal road was completed, the only way of getting to Applecross without a boat! For more information have a look at this website: The Applecross Peninsula

Just before it rained! Taken in Applecross village

Sand Bay, round the corner from Applecross. This is where the bothy in the TV show Monty Hall's Great Escape is. You might be able to see it on the right hand side of the bay in the photo.


A place call Toscaig. The end of the road, if you head South out of Applecross village.

The view from the campsite. It more than made up for the hideous weather!

It is. I love the West Coast. I think it's prettier than the East Coast, certainly up here anyway. Full of hills & lochs and little villages by the sea.
