Day Out To Applecross and Rogie Falls

The drive to Applecross is amazing and easily done in a day trip from Pottery House.

You head north on the A9 and then head towards Ullapool which finds the first stop, Rogie Falls. There's a suspension bridge for excellent views of the falls plus lots of walks through the surrounding woodlands.

The robin just sat on the directional sign at the falls just watching us, I think he thought we'd brought food.

From Rogie Falls we travelled up to Garve and then across some of the wildest and most remote parts of the Highlands to Achnasheen and LochCarron. It was a beautiful day with blue skies and surprisingly mild considering the time of year.


We stopped to take photos at Russell Burn and The Bealach na Ba, an absolutely beautiful spot before the climb up the Applecross pass.

The road then winds up the Applecross Pass across the plateau and finally down into Applecross itself. Of course you can't visit Applecross without a visit to the Applecross Inn where we enjoyed fish and chips and dressed crab salad. Absolutely gorgeous.

We had a nice walk around Applecross before the winter sunshine faded and we started our journey home. 

The road through Applecross is also part of the NC500, North Coast 500
