I had never heard of Scotland’s NC500 when travelling with a camera. Turns out, it was launched 3 years ago and a fellow ‘campervanner’ mentioned it to me 6 weeks ago. A quick read up on the route, the seed was set and the trip planned!
My membership with NC500 has been invaluable and rather than me waffle on, I quote from their website the description of the route:
‘’Embark on one of the world’s most iconic coastal touring routes, and discover the breath-taking beauty of the North Highlands; a place where you’ll find white sand beaches, rugged mountains, hidden gems and a wealth of unforgettable experiences.’’
* begins & ends at Inverness Castle
* is 516 miles
* follows the Scottish North Highlands coast
* takes in the regions of Wester Ross, Sutherland, Caithness, Easter Ross, the Easter Ross and Inverness-shire.
