    Reversing a horsebox with pony inside around those hairpins on the AX (applecross) Bealach ain't fun. Best thing about the Bealach is the view across from the meall across Coire Scamadale to Skye, but then I am biased

    As the stalker on the south beat my father used to walk up and over the bealach every day during the stalking season just to see if a flag was flying on a pole in front of the big house.If it was he waited until the guests came up,if not he walked home!Not many people have to walk up to over 2000 feet and 6 miles BEFORE going stalking for the day!!
    Thank goodness for the telephone!

    Beautiful countryside.
