North Coast 500
Inverness Castle is the official starting point for www.northcoast500.com . This popular attraction covers 500 miles of Scotland’s most beautiful coastal route, taking you to the unspoilt and dramatic scenery of the highlands. Starting from Inverness why not join us at Inverness Walking Tours be-fore your journey and get to know about our local culture and history. This experience can give you tips and suggestions for places off the main route, including places where Harry Potter and the James Bond movie ‘Skyfall’ was filmed.
The North Coast 500 is currently attracting lots of visits from all over the world and of all ages. Tak-ing in the West, North and East coast the rugged scenery will make you want to stop and enjoy a sky that never ends. Whether it’s the northern lights, sunsets or sunrises, you’ll feel the need en-joy our beautiful planet, having an adventure of a lifetime. Think of secluded, sheltered beaches with spectacular views, it is a tour that everyone should do at least once in their life.
Whether you chose to stay in a Castle or wild camp, this route takes in spectacular mountain scen-ery, and multiple stunning beaches. The Highlands has some stunning restaurants, sea food shacks and there are many local delicacies for you to try. I personally love our local seafood, caught fresh and bursting with the need to combine with a bottle of fine wine. Once bitten by the coastal route you may want to return and visit the Islands of our coast too for another adventure. However that is another experience for another time.
I have attached some helpful links below for anyone considering to take on the adventure.
