After our exertions of yesterday, Jude and I decided a leisurely day at the beach was called for. So we set off over the Beallach na ba, one of the steepest roads in Britain, to Applecross. The drive over wouldn’t normally have been a problem, but the workmen had decided to close the road for a while to lay some drainage pipes. “We’ll keep the delay to a minimum” the man said, repeating it again when pressed, to make absolutely sure he didn’t give us even an estimated time. An hour and 10 minutes later we were on our way again… (Meanwhile I walked up the road and took some photos…)
The Coille Ghillie beach is known locally as the coral beach, due to its creamy white sand. I even plucked up the courage to go for a swim. (The first time I’ve ever beaten Jude into the sea !!)
Afterwards we had a delicious evening meal at the award winning Applecross Inn, which is owned and run by our good friend Judy. It’s well worth a visit if you are ever in the area.
I would also commend to you a fellow WordPress blogger by the name of Ali MacLeod, who writes some very interesting and informative articles on life in the NW of Scotland.
