Bealach Beag Route and Profile

43.8mls
6441ft of ascentThe route will take you south east from the picturesque village of Shieldaig down through Glen Shieldaig to  Tornapress.  Things get tough now as the road swings sharply upward for the main climb to Bealach-na-Ba.The reward is great as a massive vista over the west coast and the Isle of Skye opens before you as you plunge down to sea level again at Applecross.  The hard work is not over as the next section around the north of the peninsula has hardly any flat as it clings to the coast, past rocky cliffs and sandy coves.  This is country rarely visited by the tour buses. Finally you return to charming Sheildaig nestling in the shelter of its loch.  There the enthusiastic locals will assure you a warm highland welcome (and some good grub!)
