What are the best activities for families in Applecross?
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.
