Scotland Day 7 - Wester Ross - The Scottish Highlands [04:53]
Day 7: we headed west and north from Inverness into the area of the Highlands called "Wester Ross" (according to our map, anyway (not to be confused with "Westeros," the mythical kingdom in "Game of Thrones," etc.). We made it as far as Gairloch and Guinard Bay - still a long way from the northernmost reaches of Scotland, but beautiful and dramatic scenery around every bend. On the way back to Inverness and Castle Stuart we stopped at the ruins of the Beauly Priory on the Black Isle.

Applecross Adventure [13:17]
BEALACH NA BA Bealach na Bà is a historic pass through the mountains of the Applecross peninsula in Wester Ross in the Scottish Highlands and the name of a famous, twisting, single-track mountain road through the pass and mountains. The road is engineered similarly to roads through the great mountain passes in the Alps, with very tight hairpin bends that switch back and forth up the hillside and have gradients that approach 20%. It boasts the greatest ascent of any road climb in the UK, rising from sea level at Applecross to 626 metres (2054 ft), and is the third highest road in Scotland. The name is from the Scottish Gaelic: Bealach nam Bò for Pass of the Cattle, as it was historically used as a drovers' road. APPLECROSS The name Applecross is at least 1300 years old but is not used locally to refer to the 19th century village with the pub and post office on Applecross Bay, opposite the Inner Hebridean island of Raasay. This row of houses which is often referred to as 'Applecross' is actually called 'Shore Street' and is referred to locally just as 'The Street'. The name Applecross applies to all the settlements around the peninsula, including Toscaig, Culduie, Camusterrach, Milltown, Sand, 'The Street', Lonbain and many others. The three music tracks used on the video were all composed by myself in 2012. They are: "Starlight", "House of Cards" and "Summer Ghosts".
