Applecross (Scottish Gaelic: A' Chomraich ˈxoməriç], 'The Sanctuary') is a peninsula north-west of Kyle of Lochalsh in Wester Ross, Scottish Highlands.[1] The name Applecross is at least 1,300 years old and is not used locally to refer to the 19th century village (which is correctly called 'Shore Street', or simply 'The Street') with the Applecross Inn, lying on the Applecross Bay, facing the Inner Sound, on the opposite side of which lies the Inner Hebridean island of Raasay. The monastery of Applecross was established by St Maelrubha, in the 7th century. A sculptured stone is the only remaining relic of Maelrubha, who built a chapel there.[2]
