There’s a road in the West Highlands of Scotland. It’s called Bealach na Bà. That is Scottish Gaelic for Pass of the Cattle. It is a single track road that crosses over to the small village of Applecross on the coast. It is a great motorcycle road to ride with hundreds of curves and many tight switchback corners.
As the road begins, riders and drivers are warned:
The road climbs higher and offers some impressive views of the mountains…
And then the switchbacks start.
Chances are that you won’t be alone…
The Applecross Inn is there to welcome the riders who have made the journey.
And be sure to continue to make the loop north from Applecross along the coast. Nice, quiet road with excellent views.
And while you’re in the area, Eilean Donan Castle is a required visit.
The roads and scenery in Scotland really make the journey worth it. But be certain to bring rain gear. It rains a lot there. There are also great deserts like treacle tart found at a small restaurant a little north of Eilean Donan. We had a nice lunch at Carron Restaurant.
