Scotland's North Coast 500 Route Planner
Guide to planning accommodation, itineraries and routes
Are you interested in exploring Scotland's NC500? The route, known as Scotland's answer to Route 66 includes some of the best scenery in the world and takes you around the very top of Scotland. This route is a dream to any Scottish travel blogger and I loved every minute. Deserted white sandy beaches, winding country roads, mighty dominating mountains, picturesque bridges, distilleries, breweries, sparse jurassic-like landscapes, pretty villages, fantastic wildlife and plenty of surprises.
So what about the North Coast 500 accommodation? There really is something for everyone, no matter what your budget is, be it a campsite, a luxury 5 star hotel or something a little more quirky. A popular way to travel the route is by campervan or caravan, or it seems any kind of bizarre and unique transport. It's a pretty ideal Scottish road trip.
Below I've divided up each section of the route, which i did clockwise. I'll soon be adding a NC500 route planner, hints and tips, some NC500 itineraries and a blog about my favourite North Coast 500 accommodation.
