The award winning Applecross Walled Garden Cafe & Restaurant lies in the heart of the spectacular Applecross Estate in Wester Ross at the western end of Bealach na Ba, Britain's highest mountain pass, along the famous North Coast 500 route. Surrounded by mountains, rivers and forests and with the Inner Sound of Raasay a stone throw away, we are well placed to take advantage of a huge wealth of locally sourced food.
- As you enter Applecross from the Bealach, turn right at the junction.
- Follow the road for 0.8 mile until you reach the car park.
The Applecross community is spread across over twenty crofting townships and comprises a couple of hundred people. The Gaelic name for the area, ‘a Chomraich’, means ‘The Sanctuary’ and with only two roads providing access, the peninsula is a haven from bustle and noise. A superb centre for outdoor adventures, Applecross offers unparalleled opportunities to see rare wildlife, including otters, golden eagles, seals and dolphins. With a thriving local community, an outstanding cultural heritage with its strong Gaelic history dating back to before the Bronze Age, Applecross is quaint, modern day sanctuary. The Applecross Estate, of which the Walled Garden is part, comprises some 26,000 hectares of stunningly beautiful mountains, beaches, woodlands, lochs and rivers, from Loch Torridon in the north to Loch Kishorn in the south.
