Applecross: The Sanctuary

 Last week I was over in Applecross visiting the Heritage Centre and learning about the area from the curator Gordon Cameron and especially about the great work being done by the Historical Society. The peninsula is breathtakingly beautiful and that is why I thought it deserved our first pictorial blog entry...
