Bealach na Bà Viewpoint - Strathcarron Circular route


This trip is approximately 4 hour driving time, but may take longer during busier times as a lot of it is on single track roads with passing places (if unsure of the rules please check before driving).   Start the journey on the A835 and after Garve turn onto the A832.  At Achnasheen turn onto the A890 towards Applecross.

Loch Carron

The A890 will take you up to the Bealach Na Ba Viewpoint, with amazing views along every turn.

 Applecross is a small but pretty town and we enjoyed a lunch at the Walled Garden Restaurant on the road heading north out of Applecross (clearly sign posted).

Head north towards Fearnmore and then on to Sheildaig - incredible coastal views - keep an eye out for the famous red roofed bothy.  We enjoyed a lovely coffee and delicious homemade cake in Nanny's Cafe in Sheildaig.

After Sheildaig you will be heading towards can't miss it.....

 Keep an eye out for deer.  If you carry on you meet up with Achnasheen and then return to Dingwall via Garve again.
