Monday 6th June
We enjoyed out short stay at Applecross but had to leave today. We set off at about 10.30 and followed the coast road north from Applecross around the peninsula. This must be one of the most scenic roads in Britain. It follows close to the coast for 20 miles or so with views out to Raasay, Skye and Rona.

After passing through Kinlochewe we travelled along the side of Loch Maree. We stopped to have lunch by the loch with lovely views. We crossed back to the coast at Gairloch and on to Poolewe. We had decided to wild camp that night so searched for a suitable spot along the Poolewe to Cove minor road. We investigated an area next to a slipway but decided to carry on, and we were glad that we did. We found a superb beachside area of common land where we able to park up with magnificent views for the princely sum of £5 in the honesty box!
