There is a stretch of grass right on the front of the bay where I have seen a large amount of vehicles camping for free. I absolutely kicked myself because we came into Applecross from the bealach na ba and arrived late, saw a campsite and opted for that rather than trying to find a wild spot. On leaving in the morning we drove on for 10 minutes and passed this spot with lots of campers parked up - had just spent 17 per person to park in a campsite 10mins away! Good luck hope you find somewhere. I've driven the north coast 500, Skye and around loch lomond/fort William etc so if you have any questions I can hopefully help

I normally park up at end of bay. When I visited Easter hols, you can no longer access grass area due to large boulders and parts of the grass chopped up to deny access. I moved on.

While I have loved this area for decades, they can ram it if they are trying to force me onto the extortionately priced campsite. I always fuel up at Applecross, we always eat at least once in the Inn. They're loss, not mine.

If you do stop there it's nice to pop into the Potting Shed Cafe.

We're not brave enough yet to do the pass so hopefully we'll see the grass you mentioned on the way in....Keep in touch....Keith

Pass is a dawdle, if you go down (which I always do) you can take in the views.

I usually stop at LR Applecross bay, great view over to Applecross, tarmac but on a slope and usually quiet.
Approx 1/2 hour walk to the pub.

Apart from the Inn I can't really see the attraction off Applecross. There are better places to park up in the area.

I love it at the Inn, usually in winter though.

Sand bay is always an option.

And I'll bet you're still allowed to park there! 😊
