Head for the Highlands and an Applecross holiday cottage
The village of Applecross, set in Scotland's West Highlands, is one of the most remote settlements in the United Kingdom. You'll find it at the end of spectacular mountain road, Bealach na Bà, which winds its way to a height of 2,000 feet on its way to the coast. Boasting amazing views of the coast and across to the islands of Raasay and Skye, Applecross and its cottages are ideal for hikers and lovers of the great outdoors.
Catch of the day
Fresh seafood and shellfish are easy to find in Applecross, thanks to its coastal location. A local speciality is smoked fish, produced in Applecross Smokehouse. You can buy smoked salmon, freshly caught prawns, langoustines, scallops, and crab from the smokehouse store in the village to take back to your Applecross accommodation for a delicious feast. Finish your meal with a dessert of locally made Applecross Ices, ice cream and sorbets flavoured using local products such as Toscaig raspberries, Camusteel blackcurrants, Applecross elderflower, and Highland Park whiskey.
Family fun on the Applecross coast
Whereas this stretch of coastline may be known for its spectacular views, it is also home to great beaches, perfect for kids of all ages to explore and have fun. Applecross Beach is a vast expanse of sand, with views of Raasay, Rona, and the mountains on Skye. It is backed by open moorland, home to otters, red deer, and birds of prey. Spend the day exploring on land, try some sand sledging on the 70 foot-high dunes, or go for a swim in the calm but cold waters. Explore the Applecross coastline from a very different perspective by taking a guided sea kayaking trip – a perfect day out for adventurous teenagers and their parents. Head a few miles south to Kyle of Lochalsh and take a trip on the Seaprobe Atlantis, a glass-bottomed boat that allows you to experience the coast's wildlife both above and below water.
Start your trip with a visit to the Applecross Heritage Centre, where you can learn about the long and interesting history of the village, from the Mesolithic period to the present day. Featuring exhibits and photographs, the museum is staffed by locals who add some colour to the village's fascinating history. Take a day trip to nearby Attadale Gardens, a Scottish garden that is also home to tropical plants, thanks to the unique Gulf Stream weather system in this part of the world. Visit the Japanese Garden, Rhododendron Dell, Water Gardens, and Conservatory while keeping an eye out for the modern art sculptures scattered throughout the gardens.
