From Loch Carron, where we entered the North Coast 500 route, we decided to miss out the section to Applecross as we had done this recently and it does add quite a bit to the journey. (A worthwhile note here: the road to Applecross is not suitable for caravans!) So we continued on the A896 to the beautiful Torridon, passing The Torridon Hotel (where Chris spent his 60th birthday!) right on the edge of Loch Torridon, which is a sea loch. You are surrounded by magnificent Munros here, such as Liathac and Ben Eighe so hope for some clear weather as you drive through Glen Torridon. We beetled on though as today’s drive was a long section and finally arrived at Clachtoll Beach just north of Lochinver on the B869.
