North Coast 500 and the Highlands

The north of Scotland ring road

The North Coast 500 is known as Scotland’s Route 66, an epic journey circumnavigating the most remote part of the UK, weaving through mountain passes, clinging to the coastline, and passing some of Scotland’s most impressive views.

North Coast 500 itinerary?

Don’t be fooled… this is not something you can do in a day. If you’re basing yourself in Forres, you should view the NC500 as a container rather than a circuit. The roads around the Highlands link an abundance of beautiful destinations. Pick one, make the most of the journey, and savour it along the way.
