Full description
Your trip to the beautiful Applecross Peninsula starts with a drive from Inverness 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. Your journey continues with a dramatic climb over the Bealach na Bà (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 can spend time enjoying the spectacular seascape or finding out more about the checkered history of the Highlands at the local heritage center. At Applecross wildlife abounds, so nature lovers can look out for red deer, pine martens (one of the rarest of British mammals), and otters. From Applecross you’ll make your way along the banks of Loch Torridon to 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 back to Inverness.

After having wonderful sunshine on 2 other trips, I had some drizzle on this. But I am in Scotland and it is autumn ;-) and the mood is completely different and just as beautiful. After a morning coffee stop, it even got dry. Through beautiful landscapes and a lunch break in a nice restaurant with a great, large garden we went slowly along the coast (we had a view of the Isle of Syke) with a few stops back to Inverness. This trip is quite long, but it is definitely worth it. We were lucky and only 5 of us were on the bus, so that requests could also be met. Photo stops for sheep, for example ;-)

Fantastic tour of the Highlands

It was a wonderful drive through Scotland as a non-Scotch imagines Scotland. Right in and through the Highland there is an incredible landscape at your feet. Our guide didn't tell so much, but went to numerous great photo stops and viewpoints. Highly recommended. A must for those who are looking for the "Highlander" Highlands.

Great day out to see the views on the west coast. It is a small group so you get to know each other and it’s easy for the driver to manage. Many stops along the way for tea and cake!
