North Coast 500 G.o.a.t
North Coast 500 is Scotland’s answer to Route 66.
The route way runs to and from Inverness, venturing around the capital of the Highlands, up the West Coast and back via the rugged north coast.
Because we know that the home of many explorers like yourself are far far away and you may not have the opportunity to visit Scotland again, we did not think that you would be happy in settling for just that route. Hence, we came up with North Coast 500 G.o.a.t ( greatest of all time) which was developed putting together various scenic drives which have the most jaw-dropping landscapes. You can see from the map below that the shape of your route takes the shape of an almighty 8. This itinerary shape is very dynamic as it allows you to start whichever way (clockwise/un-clock wise) you prefer and because it enables you to see many different regions in Scotland. Get ready then for a 4 days tour where you will be seeing gorges, waterfalls, Glens, Lochs, Castles and ruins.
The list is not exhaustive, really!
Since the only thing limiting the number of things that you can see and do is time, we will be advising you before and during the trip on how you can make the best use of it.
This route apart from being the best possible way of exploring Scotland in 4 days. It is a sound crash course in Scottish history, Scottish culture and social skills. No matter how uptight and awkward you are (we hope you are not), during your tour you will feel at ease (we are a lovely bunch). As a matter of fact, after we traveling with you, you will be back home a little loose and much happier than you ever have been.
