The Applecross Peninsula (Gaelic: A 'Chomraich, "The Retreat") is a peninsula in Wester Ross in Ross-shire on the west coast of Scotland. The name Applecross is at least 1300 years old and is now locally used to refer to the 19th century village with 238 inhabitants and pub and post office, located on the small Applecross Bay, separated by the Inner Sound of the Hebridean island of Raasay becomes. This row of houses, which is often referred to as "Applecross" and is also written on some maps, is actually called Shore Street ("coastal road") and is locally called only The Street. The name Applecross refers to all peninsula settlements, including Toscaig, Culduie, Camusterrach, Milltown, Sand, The Street, Lonbain and many others. The local estate is called Applecross. The small river Applecross flows at the settlement into the bay. The extremely isolated Applecross Peninsula was only accessible by boat until the early 20th century. Later, the only road access was through one of Scotland's best-known difficult roads, the Bealach-na-Bà pass road, which crosses the peninsula and rises to 626 meters below the 774 meter high Sgurr a 'Chaorachain. However, the settlement is now also connected by a coastal road with Shieldaig and Torridon. This road runs along the shores of Inner Sound and Loch Torridon.
