Eagles Rock at Applecross

There is an old tale in Applecross of how The Eagle Rock got it’s name. Legend has it a long long time ago the people of Applecross were harvesting oats. A young baby slept in it’s crib as it’s parents helped with the harvest. From the air a great eagle swooped down and picked up the baby and it’s crib in it’s massive talons. The villagers gave chase, desperate to save the baby. But alas the eagle dropped it’s precious load, the baby landed on a rock, which we now know as Eagle’s Rock.
