Dance InformationThe Applecross peninsula is in Wester Ross, Highland, on the north west coast of Scotland.
The name Applecross is at least 1300 years old and is now used locally to refer to the 19th century village with the pub and post office, lying on the small Applecross Bay, facing the Inner Sound, on the opposite side of which lies the Inner Hebridean island of Raasay.
