What a road! I'd heard so much about this Pass, was a bit nervous about it but it's well maintained, kept clear and gritted so even on low temperature days there's nothing to worry about. Wonderful views, we had deep crisp snow at the top and stunning views over to Raasay and Skye. Would recommend a stop at the Applecross... More

If you want to see the Highlands and islands at their most spectacular, a drive along this mountain pass from Lochcarron to Applecross will take your breath away. The views in all directions are amazing, the road is narrow and high, it's like being in the Alps. You will take so many stunning photos on this tremendous drive from the... More

A must if you're heading up that way. Must further recommend the drive up around the Applecross Peninsula, although it takes an hour or so, the views are absolutely stunning.

Unbelievable, narrow, single track road which zig zags up and over the mountain. Not much margin for error! The views and the scenery are breathtaking and spectacular. Took more photos while travelling this road than I have taken in the entire year. Great experience.

We found out about this road from the staff at Uig Hotel, and we are glad they recommended this route. The scenery is fabulous and the road challenging but relatively safe and easy. Though we had fine weather on our trip, I can imagine it would be seriously challenging with poor weather. Highly recommended.

Great road. I have only ever visited the area out of season. The main benefit, you meet hardly any traffic on the roads in the region. Driving can be so much fun on these roads. However, caution always required as you never know what is round the corner (or over the hill). It was late March in 2015 when we... More

Love this road the views are amazing. We always pull over as it's getting dusk and watch the deer come down off the hills. This is then followed with a trip to the applecross inn. Look forward to this day every year

We rode over this road several times of the course of four days while stopping in Applecross. What a road, really scary in the dark and once over the top the views are out of this world. But I certainly wouldn't recommend doing it on a motorbike in high winds!!
