There are walks to suit most preferences. Various lengths of woodland walks are signposted amongst the inner environs of the Applecross Estate, whilst longer hill or countryside rambles can be planned and discussed with us.
The Beallach Na Ba
This pass was historically used by drovers to take cattle over the hill but is now a single track road for the more adventurous visitors. The views from the top are stunning.
Attadale Gardens which were voted the best gardens in Scotland are only 40 minutes drive from Applecross.
Visit Eilean Donan Castle at Dornie, explore the Brochs at Glenelg, sail in a glass-bottomed boat at Kyle, or take a boat trip from the famous Plockton village to see the seals.
Restaurants and cafes
There are excellent eating places available. Both the Applecross Inn and the Historic Walled Garden Potting Shed restaurant are first class local venues.
There is a very well stocked local grocer in Camusteil (Applecross) and a local petrol station. On the first Friday of each month there is a local producers' market in Applecross village hall where you can buy local produce and crafts. A mile from Tigh Na Mara is a jewellery maker's workshop, while at Cuaig there is a weaver's shop. A stained glass studio is near the road in Arrina, and towards Sheildaig, hand spun angora knitwear can be purchased.
The most usual fish are mackerel in the bays and pollock on the edges of the seaweed, but occasional catches of other fish such as dogfish and skate are possible from a boat. A few years ago your host caught a large skate which weighed in at 187 lbs. Wild brown trout fishing in the lochs is also available, but it is good manners to contact the local gamekeepers before doing so. The rivers, however, are under a conservation, salmon and sea trout regeneration scheme. This has been a costly and time consuming exercise over the last twenty years – with mixed success, but the River Carron over at Lochcarron has responded well and a catch and release programme is in force. Tickets can be obtained under the direction of the local anglers association.
