There was a brilliant little shop up the road as well. I enquired about gas (I like to know for future reference!) and they keep all the usual stuff. I was chatting to the owner and some workmen outside who were taking a break from the heat. The lady made my day.... "Is that your camper?" "Yes!" "It's an Applecross van, did you know?" "No! Why?" "The number plate 'APX' - that's how the locals write Applecross...someone would give their right arm for that number plate!" (Workman number 1): "Is it fixed on securely?" "Yes! It's screwed on" (Workman number 2 - deadpan) "That's OK, I've got a cordless drill" There is also a community owned petrol station. Loved it here! After 2 brilliant days (it was the Applecross Highland games that weekend so the site was busy setting up Marquees etc) we had to head on. We were meeting friends at Gairloch. We took the 'long road' from Applecross. This is the road you take if you want to avoid the hill road. The scenery along this road is jaw dropping. Stunning. This doesn't do the views justice...but hopefully you get the idea!
