North Coast 500 (NC500) is Scotland’s answer to America’s Route 66 and has been named among the top six coastal road trips in the world!

  • The 500-mile road, North Coast 500, nicknamed NC500
  • The initiative, backed by Prince Charles, aims to showcase local Scottish food, drink, accommodation and activities
  • Key photographic points include the mountain ranges, Ben Hope and Suilven, and Dunrobin Castle


Scotland’s answer to Route 66, this 500 mile coastal route spans the north coast of the Highlands taking in the best bits of this glorious region.

The route starts in the northern city of Inverness, and then weaves along the west coast to Applecross and then northwards towards the bustling towns of Torridon and Ullapool. From there, you’ll venture to some of the most northerly coastal points in Scotland, passing by Caithness and John o’ Groats before heading south again  through Dingwall and finally back to Inverness.
