When I did Applecross the rule was downhill give way and use passing place either side. Surprising how many people think they can only use the passing place on their side of the road.

This is a 7.5 metre Hymer A Class going over West to East on a lovely clear, bright day.
That's the way I prefer going the pass, you get you get to enjoy the views down to loch kishorn, also allow gravity to get you around the hairpins.
Worse part me at 13 minutes in on clip, I hate that stretch up towards the summit.
The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.
We went over in a 6m PVC, it was thick fog and to make matters worse the Applecross games had just finished, so everyone was coming back the other way, it was a nightmare. I'd do it again, and pick a better time, but my wife says never again.
Don't Spend your money where you're not welcome.
No problems at all in a 7.4m coachbuilt.
Best to give way to oncoming traffic using passing places, some drivers just don't know the etiquette of using these.
Remember that if you are going up the pass that there are some steep drops on your left.
Best time to use the pass in a motorhome is late afternoon or early evening when traffic is much lighter.
