There two roads into Applecross, the coast road from the North or the Bealach pass from the south, this is the highest road in the UK and not for the faint hearted but if the clouds clear the view is spectacular, reaching across to the Outer Hebrides and the Kintail mountains to the south. When you eventually feel the need for less headier climbs and seek sanctuary in the peninsular below you will come into the pretty village of Applecross, the Gaelic name for which is "a Chomraich" which coincidentally means "sanctuary".
Applecross is the name of the area and the larger community but there is a small village which is the focal point of most things. The Applecross Inn is generally the place to head to and has won several awards for it's good food. Applecross sits on the banks of the Inner Sound, the stretch of water that separates the mainland from The Isle of Skye and travellers can sit on the banks of the Sound and watch migrating wales journey north and there will often be dolphins and seals playing in the water.
The mountains behind Applecross offer travellers a wealth of incredible walks that stretch for miles.The mountains also provide an opportunity to catch a glimpse of high flying Eagles that sour over the mountains above.
Lochend is a very special one bedroom cottage perched on the edge of Loch a' Mhuilin with amazing views out over the Sound to the Islands of Raasay, Rona and Skye . Lochend is just a mile away from Applecross, a very popular village with a well known pub, The Applecross Inn with has won awards for it's excellent food. Applecross also has a small village shop which caters not only for the small local population but also the many visitors who come to walk the mountains behind Lochend.SEE COTTAGE
