North Coast 500

The North Coast 500 (NC500) is the brand new touring route that aims to bring together the best of the Scottish Highlands.

The media have named it Scotland’s own Route 66, but really where else can compare with the culture and heritage of Scotland’s northern coastal route? On the NC500, you will see some of our most famous landmarks such as the magnificent Suilven, Dunrobin Castle or the beaches at Achmelvich and Dornoch.

What route does the NC500 take?

The official North Coast 500 route begins in Inverness and heads west towards Kyle of Lochalsh, up the scenic west coast to Durness and across the most northerly stretch to John O’Groats then back down to Inverness again, covering a total of 500 miles.
