The Bealach na Ba'

Possibly the Most Iconic part of the North Coast 500 is the The Bealach na Ba'It's a winding single track road through the mountains of the Applecross peninsula in Wester Ross. The historic mountain pass is engineered similarly to roads through the great mountain passes in the Alps with very tight hairpin bends that switch back and forth up the hillside and gradients that approach 20%. It boasts the steepest ascent of any road climb in the UK rising from sea level at Applecross to 626 metres (2054 ft) and is the third highest road in ScotlandThe name is Scottish Gaelic for Pass of the Cattle as it was historically used as a drovers' road. Bealach na Ba is pronounced Bee-al-uch nu Ba(h)The Bealach as it is known for short is unsuitable for learner drivers large vehicles and motorhomes. Please use caution while travelling up and down the Bealach. The route is often impassible in winterAnd to round of that story here is an even better one that has appeared in the website named "Dangerous roads" a website that covers the Worlds Most Dangerous RoadsSo if you need to learn a bit more about the The Bealach na Ba' then I suggest you start right here with this article
