Holiday homes & accommodation to rent in Applecross
Applecross is the name of a remote, picture-perfect peninsula in the Highlands of Wester Ross, and here sits some of our best Scottish cottages. Locals simply refer to the village of Applecross as 'The Street' and it’s the hub of this beautiful holiday destination. Famed for its wildness, remoteness and fantastic views, it's thought to be one of the earliest settlements in Scotland and, due to its beauty, we aren’t surprised people chose to settle here. There are a number of major archaeological sites in the area that are waiting for you to visit and discover the intriguing past. All of this can be enjoyed when staying in our Applecross cottages.
The area is a top place for food, music and sunsets, all components of an amazing holiday. This tranquil coastal destination sits across from the Isle of Skye and enjoys a similarly spectacular landscape. Applecross can only be reached from two directions: a winding coastal road from Shieldaig from the north or via The Pass of The Cattle, which is one of the UK's highest roads, complete with hairpin bends and amazing valley views. It is one of the most impressive spots that west coast Scotland has to share with you and the Applecross peninsula is a real place of beauty. Its remoteness adds to the absolute peacefulness of the area: people visit this holiday destination to escape their daily grind - you'll definitely feel as if you've travelled to the ends of the earth for this stunning Scottish location.
