Interesting facts about this location
Bealach na Bà
Bealach na Bà is a historic pass through the mountains of the Applecross peninsula, in Wester Ross in the Scottish Highlands—and the name of a famous twisting, single-track mountain road through the pass and mountains. The road is one of few in the Scottish Highlands that is engineered similarly to roads through the great mountain passes in the Alps, with very tight hairpin bends that switch back and forth up the hillside and gradients that approach 20%.

Inner Sound, Scotland
The Inner Sound is a strait separating the Inner Hebridean islands of Skye, Raasay and South Rona from the Applecross peninsula on the Scottish mainland. Its Gaelic name, An Lighe Rathairseach, should not be confused with An Linne Rathairseach, its western neighbour. Together, they can be considered as southeastern arms of the Little Minch. The Inner Sound is the location of BUTEC, a Royal Navy submarine sensor and emissions range.

The Crowlin Islands (Scottish Gaelic: Na h-Eileanan Cròlainneach) are a group of uninhabited islands in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. They lie between Skye and the Applecross peninsula on the mainland. The individual islands are: Eilean Mòr (big island) Eilean Meadhonach (middle island) Eilean Beag (little island) Although cave excavations on Eilean Mòr have shown evidence of human settlement in Mesolithic times 8,000 years ago, the islands have been uninhabited since about 1920.
Located at 57.43, -5.81 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 6 mi away.
Port an Eòrna
Port an Eòrna is the Scottish Gaelic name for the small settlement of Barleyport, situated almost midway between Plockton and the Kyle of Lochalsh, in Ross-shire, Scotland, in the Western Highlands. Port an Eòrna was once a fishing community near Duirinish, an area of common grazing for sheep and Highland cattle. Now it is a cluster of a few houses on National Trust for Scotland land, in an area of spectacular natural beauty.
