We know you love the outdoors, otherwise why would you be here? Please help us to protect our environment and take care whilst out in this magnificent landscape. Put litter and dog waste in bins, and if you see some stray rubbish, pick it up and pop it in a bin too!

We highly recommend the use of Map Sheet 24 in the OS Landranger Map series while exploring the peninsula. For detailed access information, each trail has been mapped and potential hazards, surfaces, gradients and facilities recorded. We have local walks leaflets available from local outlets (Post Office, Applecross Inn, The Walled Garden, The Coal Shed, and Hartfield House Hostel).

All walks provide superb coastal and mountain panoramas, with opportunities for viewing wildlife. Many of the paths represent traditional transport routes of historic interest, and pass by sites of historic and archaeological importance.

The Applecross Trust is a conservation charity with responsibility for 70,000 acres of the Applecross peninsula. Improving access to the landscape is a key aim, with path building and maintenance a core activity. Booklets on the peninsula’s heritage, archaeology and geology are available from local outlets.
