Scotland's North Coast 500
The North Coast 500 (NC 500) was first marketed in 2014 and in just a few years it has gained international acclaim as one of the best driving routes in the world. It is a 500 mile circuit that starts and ends in the Highland capital, Inverness and circumnavigates the most northerly part of the UK. The route can be explored in different ways – clockwise or anti-clockwise for those wishing simply to follow the coastal route only. A more interesting option is to include some of the less-travelled interior roads, with some of the best coastal sections of the NC 500.
And I would drive 500 miles!
The perfect Luxury Base for the NC 500
Dornoch is situated centrally on the eastern coast of the NC 500, connected to the far north, west and south west sections of the NC 500 through a network of double and single track roads. We have selected some of the best routes that allow drivers to explore a combination of the interior and coastal routes, taking in some of the best Highland attractions en route. Using a single base to explore the NC 500 has many advantages – saving time on packing and unpacking, checking in and out and more time for driving and visits to attractions. We also suggest a Rest Day so that guests can take time out from driving, to enjoy all the other activities on offer.
