Nothing like as bad as some suggest - unless you're a campervan which should just stay away.... but I could say that for most Highland roads which choke to a halt with them all Summer!
Nice views but not spectacular - if you are having...More
Defo not for the faint hearted scary road but on the positive side lovely views but still scary . I did not even think about driving my husband did it there and back. It was the shortest route for us but I am told he...More
This is a testing drive up and over a mountain. Very windy road which, for the most part, is single track. Would suggest anyone thinks of taking a caravan or motor home up and over - too many hairpin bends. Not great for the driver...More
While the roads are narrow, there are plenty of lay by's ( little pull offs) to allow others to go by. The views are breathtaking. I can't tell you how many photos we took. While the road is not long - allow lots of time...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 for 1 week, a few miles from Lochcarron (see Wilderness Cottages). But I would recommend staying somewhere less isolated as its nice to have facilities when the weather is bad (as it was with us last year).
