Applecross Hills

The Applecross Hills, Wester Ross are formed from a high plateau which has some very steep cliffs especially the Northern Corries which can be seen from the Kishorn to Shieldaig road.

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.
