Leaving Inverness you head west en route to the infamous Bealach ‘na Ba (pronounced Bell-ach-na-baa) that is located in Wester Ross. The route leads you through some truly spectacular scenery but the best is yet to come! The Bealach 'na Ba is a single-track mountain road that is the third highest road in Scotland rising up to 626m (2,054ft) above sea level. It's also been named as one of the most scenic drives in the world and despite its height, is also enjoyed by cyclists! The views as you ascend the road are fantastic and there is a car park at the top to allow you to get out and stretch your legs and admire the view back down towards Loch Kishorn. Being a single-track road, there are ‘passing places’ located on it – it’s customary to pull in and let someone by if you're holding the traffic up. Please remember that this road is in everyday use for locals, not just for those driving the North Coast 500! (Photo Credit - Thibaut Marquis via Unsplash)
