Driving The Applecross Pass

A hyper lapse video of me driving the Applecross Pass ( Bealach na Bà in Gaelic) using in-car video, drone footage and aerial photography.

The Applecross Pass is the third highest road in Scotland and has some absolutely breathtaking scenery on its route.

It was originally a cattle drovers route and was formally turned into a mountain road in 1822. It features tight hairpin bends that switch back an forth and steep gradients approaching 20%.

It is often closed in winter so driving this road is better suited to summer months.

Where is The Applecross Pass?

The Applecross Pass snakes its way from Tornapress to Applecross in the western Highlands of Scotland.

How Long is The Applecross Pass?

The Applecross Pass is just over 11 miles / 18km long. It is very narrow and very high so driving the Applecross Pass takes more time than expected. It typically takes over 30mins to drive the Applecross.

Is The Applecross Pass One Way?

No, the Applecross Pass is not one-way but it is single-track, meaning you have to use passing places to let oncoming traffic through.
