NC500 Route Map
The North Coast 500 is a scenic route that spans over 500 miles of the Scottish Highlands, offering breathtaking views of the rugged coastline, mountains, and remote fishing villages. The route starts in the northern city of Inverness and weaves along the west coast to Applecross before heading northwards towards the towns of Torridon and Ullapool.
If you’re planning a road trip along the NC 500, here are some tips to help you make the most of your journey:
Plan your route: The NC 500 is not an actual single road or highway like Route 66 or the Pacific Coast Highway. It is a series of existing roads that form a loop around the northern Highlands. Therefore, it’s important to plan your route in advance and decide which sights and attractions you want to visit along the way.
Make sure to pack all the essentials such as food, water, warm clothing, and comfortable shoes. Also, consider carrying spares such as bulbs, fuses, fan belts, engine oil, coolant, spare tire, jumper cables, and first aid kit.
Book accommodation in advance:
The NC 500 is a popular tourist destination and accommodation can be scarce during peak season. Therefore, it’s advisable to book your accommodation in advance.
Take your time: The NC 500 is not a race. Take your time to enjoy the scenery and explore the hidden gems along the way.
Be prepared for narrow roads:
Some parts of the NC 500 have narrow roads with sharp bends and steep gradients. Therefore, it’s important to drive carefully and be prepared for challenging driving conditions.
The NC 500 passes through some of Scotland’s most beautiful landscapes. Therefore, it’s important to respect nature and leave no trace behind.
Essential for those planning a trip on the North Coast 500.
