Hello ...we are thinking of doing the Scottish North Coast 500 route. Has anyone got experience or tips for this adventure Also any advice on good route books /maps that you could recommend would be really apprecaited ... thanks
Sorry meant top right the top left was great!!!! Will alter the post! We cut through past there in the other direction but went staright to the north coastHi @The Wino
Did you mean the Top Left or did you mean the Top Right.
We went Clockwise but cut down via the Altnaharra campsite . That was a very nice site although some may be put off by the Brownish Fresh Water until they have tasted it. No it hasn't got any whisky in it, unfortunately.
how long did it take, and were did you start from,thank you ,ok pjDid it last year just look at the website and have fun. We did it anticlockwise and missed out the lop right corner as a lot of reviews said it wasn't that good but added a quick nip over to Skye. Went in May which is the latest to go and avoid the worst of the midge season and avoid bank/school holidays if possible. The top of Scotland and west coast was fantastic maybe call in at Applecross and before that the Clachtoll site which was nice. We did 1/2 wild 1/2 sites lots of things to find/look at. Can come up with more ideas if you like but I'm sure you will enjoy exploring yourself. Search for sites is usefull for finding places to stay and the wildcamping app
Empty and fill every chance you get and keep a couple of emergency meals in the van in case you find a great spot nowhere near any shops. If you are near any shops especially small privately owned ones make sure you use them and say you are in a m/hWe intend to do this anticlockwise in September/early October. Using some sites and wilding. Any hint and tips would be useful.
