Applecross Landscape Partnership Walks

'The Applecross Landscape Partnership Scheme (ALPS) is a partnership of: The Applecross Trust; Applecross Historical Society; Applecross Archaeological Society; Applecross Community Council; Applecross Crofters; Applecross Walks and Traditional Crafts Group; The Bealach Group.'

'Extremely isolated, Applecross was only accessible by boat until the early 20th century, and for many years after that the only road access was over one of Scotland's most notoriously treacherous roads, the Bealach na Ba ("Pass of the Cattle"), which crosses the peninsula and reaches a maximum height of 2053 ft (626 m), below the 774 m high Sgùrr a' Chaorachain. The settlement is now connected via a winding coastal road which travels around the edge of the peninsula to Shieldaig and Torridon. The road skirts the shore of the Inner Sound and Loch Torridon.'
