|1000 Ft View|
I had to stop and admire the views a lot and I felt sorry for the car drivers who passed me and wasn't able to stop on this road and look at what I could see. Not long after 1500ft the tough part of the climb came with the hairpin bends all the way to the summit.
All to soon I was at the top and according to my GPS the summit was in fact 2083ft but who knows, I certainly wasn't going to get my measuring tape out!!!!
The journey down into Applecross wasn't as nice as the climb but you do get some great views across the bays to Skye and beyond. I had to admire the skill and nerve of the cyclists as they tackled the downhill stretch, they were going at some speed.
Accommodation: Applecross Youth Hostel. This hostel is located just outside Applecross at Hartfield, the accommodation has just been built and it was a great nights stay at £25.00 for my own room, there is a restaurant just around the corner that does fantastic veggie breakfasts
