Applecross Adventure

Applecross Bay

What an amazing place,totally worth the long drive to get there.So far away though,so isolated as I imagine so much of Scotland to be. I,d never been anywhere that was quite as quiet as this.I heard no air traffic,very few cars,the sea was still and sheltered by the isle of Raasy and the Isle of Skye.Long Lost forgotten cottages,most of them now holiday cottages....,lots of tourists....few Scottish accents here I noticed.. A place that would have been been busy and bustling once many years ago in a real life way ,now a stop for strangers to wonder at and relax in. I wondered how people survive here, community jobs and working from home maybe. The beauty of the place , the  proximity to nature , the flora and fauna ,the sea , the amazing air . We all loved it and would have stayed if we could.


A small loch

A funny place to find a monkey puzzle

Traditional music in the local pub

View from the tent

Yay! we saw deer

We had to walk a couple of miles to reach this beach,there was only an old drover,s path. The cottages were holiday lets and their visitors  also had to walk the path or come by boat !This beach is a coral beach and that lovely white sand is not sand but minute pieces of coral!!

Time flies when you,re having fun on the beach
