    In Wester Ross we have the 'Bealach na Ba'  or  ( Pass of the Cattle ) which is the Highest Road in Britain at 2053 ft above sea level and I can tell you that it is one of the most beautiful views I have ever come across in my life.   The winding drive up from the A896 to Applecross, making full use of the 'passing places', is amazing, as you look behind you you can see Loch Kishorn in all it's glory.  Then after passing the village of Applecross you can look over the Inner Sound to see The Isle of Raasay, Isle of Rona and the Isle of Skye!  WOW !
