Bealach na Bà is a famous twisting, single-track mountain road in the Scottish Highlands. The road is one of few in the Scottish Highlands that is engineered similarly to roads through the great mountain passes in the Alps, with very tight hairpin bends that switch back and forth up the hillside and gradients that approach 20%.
It boasts the greatest ascent of any road climb in the UK, rising from sea level at Applecross to 626 metres (2,054 ft), and is the third highest road in Scotland. One of Scotland’s most notoriously treacherous roads, the Bealach na Ba crosses the peninsula and reaches a maximum height of 2053 ft (626 m), below the 774 m high mountain Sgùrr a’ Chaorachain.
