Bealach na Ba, Isle of Skye, The Scottish Highlands

Bealach na Ba is a pass through the mountains on the Scottish Highlands’ Applecross peninsula. It is a twisting, single-track mountain road, and is the third highest road in the United Kingdom.

The road famously rises from sea level to 626 metres at Bealach na Ba or ‘cattle pass’, with steep gradients and hairpin turns much like in the Alps. You can walk from the pass up a further hill along a path to the TV tower and enjoy the spectacular views.
