Photographer's Note

After Achnasheen, we drove further west and we took the A890 road to Strathcarron. Then up the A896 to Tornapress and starting there for a great a tour around the Applecross peninsula.
But then it looked like the Bealach Beag had got the same idea on Sat 12th May 2018...

The Bealach is the UK’s biggest road climb with an ascent of 626m from sea level in just 10km.  It is set in a fabulous unspoilt landscape with outstanding views of the sea and hills.  The Applecross Peninsula is renowned as a gem in Scotland’s crown of natural wonders. The idea of a sportive belongs to local cycling legend Clifford Davidson.
The Bealach Mor retains the original route of 144km and the Bealach Beag introduced a shorter distance of 72kms.
