DAY 3 — TOUR 2 — LEG 1 OF THE NC500 ROUTE & ISLE OF SKYE

 

Waking up to another exciting day of driving — you will soon follow the first official leg of the iconic NC500 Route from coast to coast via the shores of Loch Ness. From the remains of Urghurt Castle you can look out for the legendary Loch Ness Monster.

 

Further down your scenic route you will soon spot Scotland’s most iconic man made sight — Eilean Donan Castle that graces many postcards from the Highlands.

⚠️The famous road to Applecross (also known as Bealach Na Ba Pass) is optional since the road is very narrow. We do not recommend the road for unexperienced drivers.

The bridge connecting the Highlands with the Isle of Skye will be your gateway to reach your hotel; where you can zip your Whiskey sample from the other day in front of the fireplace. 

📍4* Duisdale House Hotel, Isle of Skye

DAY 4 — TOUR 3 — ISLE OF SKYE & LEG 2 OF NC500 ROUTE

Kilt Rock and the Mealt Falls are an absolute highlight before you get to drive LEG 2 — of the North Coast 500 Route. The very same route that also McLaren uses in their driving tour. 

Discover the natural beauty and scenic driving roads during a relaxed day of driving and enjoy a an authentic lunch.

DAY 5 — TOUR 4 — LEG 3 OF THE NC500 ROUTE

Never-ending back roads, wide meandering country tracks and beautiful bends through some of Scotland's finest coastal scenery without any distractions — all the way up to Kylesku bridge. This is the most northern point of your personal NC500 Route. Beyond this point the route gets a little narrow and uneventful.

Enjoy your lunch at the harbour of Ullapool and visit the local museum before you had back to  the capital of the Scottish Highlands.
