Applecross is a tiny, secluded fishing village. It has been known as a sanctuary since St Maol Rubha brought Christianity here over a thousand years ago. Today, tucked away over the Britain's most spectacular pass, the Bealach Na Ba, it still offers visitors an escape from modern life.
Both north and south of Applecross are some wonderful beaches, with both coral white and red sands. The mountains slope gently down to the coast on this side, but from the other side of the Bealach Na Ba, at Kishorn, their true character is revealed in a series of dramatic ice-scraped corries.
