1 - Take the High Road
Glasgow to Applecross, Scotland
The 200 mile drive begins in Glasgow, sears through the Highlands, and emerges to the magnificent west coast. It is truly one of the world’s most beautiful journeys. From the tranquility of Loch Lomond to the rugged majesty of Rannoch Moor and Glencoe (true Braveheart country), the scenery and wide-open roads is an unforgettable combination for car or motorcycle.
The most direct route from here is to head north to Invergarry, then west towards the Kyle of Lochalsh and the final zigzag stretch to Applecross. An undoubted highlight is the climb over the 926m Bealach na Bà, or “Pass of the Cattle”, which winds its way through the mountains of the Applecross peninsula.
