Applecross Road and Loch Kishorn

Applecross Road is known as Bealach na Ba (Pass of the Cattle), which crosses the Applecross peninsula and reaches a maximum height of 2053 ft (626 m), below the 774 m high Sgurr Achaoracahin.

The name Applecross is at least 1300 years old and is used locally to refer to the 19th century village with the pub and post office, lying on the small Applecross Bay, facing the Inner Sound, on the opposite side of which lies the Inner Hebridean island of Raasay.

The small River Applecross flows into the bay at Applecross. Applecross is also the name of the local estate.
