Driving Scotland's North Coast 500: Our 7-day Road Trip

So you want to drive the North Coast 500 (NC500)? We completed Scotland’s version of Route 66 over 7 days in September 2018. We’d like to share our experience and insights to help you plan a Scotland road-trip of your dreams. We cover days needed, distances, driving time, costs and provide links to additional resources. We’ve also created an article series that covers each of our days with many of our favourite photos.
