The first time I have been to Scotland riding and someone told me to do this route as it one of the best riding roads in the UK; I was not disappointed! Breath taking and put a big grin on my face for days!

We drove the loop from Torridon over the high road, and around the low coast road returning. The weather was fair and the land and seascape scenery was amazing. Lunch at Applecross Inn on the picnic tables overlooking the water was lovely.

Sheildaig is lovely and has a good pub and restaurant. Applecross is lovely too but I think its not a good base, unless you like the hairy drive on a regular basis! We stayed in a lodge in Achintraid, just outside of Kishorn... More
