Without wanting to contribute to a Covid debate, I was a little underwhelmed when we arrived at Applecross after driving The Pass of The Cattle. I have seen far better beaches and my opinion only, the drive was better than the destination.:unsure:

Would it be fair to say that the whole point of the NC500 is the journey, not the destinations?

There are many places we travel through/to that are not as ‘good’ as other places. 🤷‍♂️

Sorry, my quote \ comment was mainly around the "better beaches" part.:rolleyes:
There are much better beaches all over Scotland than Applecross.

I my opinion you are correct, there are many better beaches around Scotland. I don’t think people go to Applecross for the beaches. It’s more how remote it is and the drive seems to be a bucket list item. The scenery is pretty good too. Been many times on motorbikes and in cars. I won’t bother in the motorhome although I’m sure it’s doable.

Caravan for 25 years then cottages and B&Bs for 15 before finally taking the plunge with PVC
Having stopped at Kishorn at the bottom of the pass for a few weeks, the area is stunning but it still doesn’t warrant taking an oversized vehicle of any description over the pass, there are easier routes.
once I had a stag and his ladies jump out in front of me whilst travelling down the pass in my car, if we had hit any of them it would have potentially meant emergency services trying to get up or down to u, doesn’t bear thinking about what would happen if there were motorhomes on the pass.
there is a numpty on utube ‘travel trolls’ who posted himself going up and many people commented on him being an idiot. Mind you he and his girlfriend do appear to have a slate lose Who court disaster and confrontation.gives Motorhomers a bad nam IMHO
