Tent....check, sleeping bag....check, Amazon rain forest insect repellent.....check, enough waterproof clothing to survive a biblical flood....check. Ah the pleasures of a weekend camping trip to the Scottish Highlands.
Applecross is a tiny coastal village in the remote Northwest Highlands of Scotland. Famous because access is via a spectacular climb over Bealach na Ba (the Pass of the Cattle)
This area is a very sparsely populated wilderness with many lochs, mountains, moors and great roads with very little traffic. Rare things in our crowded little island.
Our party was myself (FJ1200), Norman & Terry (both MZ Skorpions), Mike (Triumph Sprint ST) & Gareth (Kawa KLE500)
I took lots of photographs because it is a truly epic landscape.
