Taking the road through Kinlochewe and Torridon, you can continue through the village of Shieldaig and down to the lochside village of Lochcarron which is the home of the famous Lochcarron Weavers
. Just over the loch the beautiful Attadale Garden
is open to the public.
If you’re happy to travel a little further you can visit the world famous Eilean Donan castle – probably the most photographed castle in Scotland. On the return journey travel round the Applecross peninsula and the drive of your life, as you negotiate the steep zig-zag bends of the Bealach Na Ba, one of the highest roads in Britain.
Not for the faint hearted, but the views from the top over the Isle of Skye are worth it! On reaching Applecross village, the Applecross Inn is justly famed for its seafood, and there is an interesting heritage centre to visit. Instead of returning over the hill route, you can drive round the coast past lovely beaches with excellent views, to rejoin the road at Torridon.
