As someone who is terrified of heights and one way roads I was expecting nothing but fear! Lovely drive with amazing views !! Highly recommend if you are a confident driver. Well worth it!

A must do experience in Westeros. Breathtaking views and hairpin bends. Adrenalin rush for motor bike enthusiasts but easily driven by all ages

Always a favourite drive. A bit slower than usual today due to French Top Gear filming on the road. Needs a lot of look ahead and courtesy to ensure best use of passing places is made. Make sure you return via the longer route north...More

I first drove this road just one week after passing my driving test, when there were few barriers and crumbling edges and double-declutching was required, so the road today is much improved, but still requires total concentration to navigate the narrow hairpins and gradient and...More

Sheildaig is lovely and has a good pub and restaurant. Applecross is lovely too but I think its not a good base, unless you like the hairy drive on a regular basis! We stayed in a lodge in Achintraid, just outside of Kishorn... More
