Now incorporating North Coast 500
This five day tour is more than just a lap of the Scottish coastline. The route we take incorporates Scotland’s North Coast 500 which has been named among the top six road coastal road trips in the world by Travel Now magazine, the NC500 covers over five hundred miles of spectacular Scottish scenery and roads which were meant to be ridden.
You will see the stark contrast in landscapes as we navigate around the mainland. We take in Duncansby Head and its coastal stacks before a visit to John O’Groats – the “end of the road” – an area recently redeveloped. The views across the Pentland Firth to the Orkney Isles are stunning and one can’t help admiring the lovingly restored John O’Groats Hotel now called the Inn at John O’Groats.
Continuing our circuit we cross the top of the mainland where we discover a truly unique industry before descending down the west side where the scenery can only be described as magnificent.
Throughout the journey we stay in some historical hotels sampling the finest local cuisine.
