Highlights of Scotland


The road from Tornapress (on the A896, north of Kyle of Lochalsh) to Applecross is most dramatic, with steep gradients up to 20% and hairpin turns like those in the Alps. The road passes the infamous Bealach-na-Ba or 'Cattle Pass', at a height of 629 metres. At a hill stands a TV-tower and a walk of about 30 minutes along a not-too-bad path leads to it (a climb of 155 m), and from there one has spactacular views all around.
