Applecross Peninsula Day Trip from Inverness

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide and group at a pre-arranged departure point in downtown Inverness. Climb into a luxury minibus and settle in for the journey to the Applecross Peninsula, passing through a picturesque area known as the Black Isle on the way. During the trip, which takes just a few hours, stop at the charming village of Lochcarron to stretch your legs and explore a bit.

    Upon arrival in the village of Arndarroch, admire views of Loch Kishorn, then chug up the steep Bealach nam Ba (Pass of the Cattle). From the summit of the pass at 2,000 feet (610 meters) high, get photo-worthy views of the nearby Isle of Skye.

    Spend some free time in the quaint village of Applecross, enjoying the scenic seascape and keeping an eye out for local wildlife such as pine martens, otters and red deer. Pop into a pub for lunch if you're hungry or immerse yourself in HIghlands history at the Applecross Heritage Centre (both at own expense). 

    Meet your guide back at the minibus for a scenic drive along the shoreline of Loch Torridon, stopping to explore the town of Shieldaig. Continue through Britain's oldest nature reserve, the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve, where you may see golden eagles soaring overhead. 

    On the journey back to Inverness pass through the typical villages of Achnasheen and Kinlochewe. Arrive back in central Inverness in the early evening for drop-off.
