“Applecross is a wonderful village with a fabulous pub, a perfect place to end a day of sea kayaking. The journey out to the Crowlin Islands is not only very scenic with views out to Rona, Raasay and the Small Isles, but the Crowlin Islands themselves are full of magic and mystery and a joy to paddle though, often with glimpses of otters. There has been human settlement here for 8,000 years.”
