Starting in Invergarry you take smooth, fast flowing A-road all the way past Eilean Donan castle turning off and gaining altitude on the tighter road over to Lochcarron. Bealach na Bà - "The pass of the cattle" is one of the few true alpine style mountain passes in the UK. Very tight hairpins with high drops to the side take you to the summit for some fantastic views of the Isle of Skye on a clear day. Descend into Applecross and have a meal and a drink at the very hospitable Applecross Inn.

A fantastic and unforgetable ride. Look forward to doing it again early May!

If you can get a night at the Applecross Inn you will be in heaven.
