Bealach Na Ba

May 13, 2012 Landscape, People, Scotland, Video, X100

HD on Vimeo Bealach Na Ba, once the only road into the remote western shores town of Applecross. Now a ‘must ride’ road for those that prefer the two wheeled mode of transport. Think of the road like any country road around Wicklow, except on steroids. Oh and with a perfect surface.
