Geocache Description:

Doing the NC500 and/or The G7BA16 Virtual Reward cache? This is the perfect cache to do to stretch your legs as well as your nerve..!

Put Matt Munro's 'On Days Like These' (as used over the opening credits of The Italian Job) on your stereo and head to Applecross. This zig-zagging road climbs from the lochside to 2,053ft (626m) in a few miles. Strap yourself in and enjoy the ride!

Picture by North-SouthDivide

The road to the cache is a dangerous, narrow, steep, twisting one reminiscent of an Alpine pass and shouldn't be attempted in poor weather. Once at the car park at the top, simply follow your GPSr carefully. The cache isn't far from the road so please take care not to be seen. Thanks!
