Hi MJ. I'm no apple tree expert so listen to any that are. 

However, what I would do with that is remove the entire branch that starts low down on the right. Back to the trunk. If you look at your marked cuts there won't be much left in the way of productive growth on it and it would balance up the shape.

Also, cutting off ends of thick branches like that can lead to die back or long straggly regrowth and looks ungainly at best.

That would be good Bookertoo. I always build a 'tree' with things from the garden at Christmas. Some red berries would be great. The holly has already been stripped, it didn't take long, there weren't many.
