THE BEALACH NA BA, THE ROAD TO APPLECROSS
The Bealach Na Ba, known locally as the ‘Pass of the Cattle’, is one of the more famous driving routes in Scotland. The route reaches an altitude of 2,053 ft (625.7 m) and provides stunning views across the whole of Wester Ross, the Isle of Skye and the Outer Hebrides. With its tight bends this road isn’t for the faint hearted but the views from the top are by far the most rewarding.
