Has anyone here driven their campervan to or from Applecross via Bealach na Bà?
we like playing the game pass the pigs
Me too, spent untold hours playing pass the pigs on the gally table whilst flying in our Nimrod (The Mighty Hunter) searching the cold, cruel, heartless expanses of ocean for Russian submarines.
I used to like a nice double leaning jowler
No but have done on similar roads in the area.
Are you wondering if its OK with a bus?
Haven't seen that game since my school days
Yeah, I've been up some pretty steep hills in my bus in the past but this mountain pass gets quite a fierce write up. I'm off to to the North Coast 500 this summer and that's one of the possible routes.
Have you any knowledge of where Bob is headed to?
I've not been quite that far north... yet.
I think a few of the write ups in the campsite trips section mention it
Ahh I thought you had! Its on my list of places, Applecross looks stunning
Whilst scoffing huge amounts of food cooked no less by the poor radar operator or what was the name of the sonar buoy deployer?
@fugly76 & @thebobdog have done the trip, if someone can tag them
I know its a pig on a push bike, so I am guessing a van could be challenging!
Unless they went a sailing down the Moray Firth coz they wasn't looking where they was going
@sANDYbAY my Cus goes up in his t25 he's been to the very top of Scotland its amazing free camping.
@sANDYbAY Was thinking of doing five Countries Northumberland England /Scotland/ Northern Ireland/ Ireland / Wales.
What a Road trip that would be
Yes we did it last Summer, went from East to West and took the coast road on the way back. Only as it was a different route and new views to see. We were all 2 litre type 4 vans and it wasn't difficult. A slight driveshaft knock from mine on the way up round the tight hairpins and smelly brakes when we got to the bottom at Applecross
Have you done it on a bike then? *
* gone to Applecross not, you know, ..... IT! **
** actually, if you have done a pig on a push bike then respect. But please, no pictures.
Excellent, we'll go over the top then rather than taking the soft girly bypass road.
Aiy, I ave so. bigger, longer and harder than Hardknott pass but the bends ain't as tight! I think.
Not a cyclist btw just thought I see what some of those triathlon type challenges are like in the highlands, only did the remote navigation over two days, walking not running and a bit of the biking when up there several summers ago.
