Bealach na Bà

This stretch of road from Kishorn to Applecross is known as the Pass of the Cattle, Bealach na Bà in Gaelic, and is renowned for its steep ascent, climbing to 2053ft (625m). The view from the top is spectacular, before descending to Applecross. The Applecross peninsula had no road in the late 18th century, the first being this road from Kishorn. A further road was built in 1970 to Shieldaig, but the area still has a reputation for inaccessibility
