On day 3 of our North Coast 500 road-trip, we travelled from Thurdistoft to Durness, via Bettyhill and Tongue. We had a picnic lunch on the shores of Loch Eriboll - the UK’s deepest sea loch. We also ventured into Smoo Cave - the UK’s largest sea cave entrance. We finished the day enjoying the sunset over Sango Bay where we camped the night.

Keep reading about Day 2 of our North Coast 500 road-trip. After we left Hill O’Many Stanes, and missed the 300 Whaligoe Steps turn-off, we continued on to John O’Groats. We spent an hour walking around the sheep-covered hills of Duncansby Head near the Lighthouse and Stacks. We stayed overnight at an amazing Airbnb property, Thurdistoft Farmhouse.
On day 1 of our North Coast 500 road-trip, we travelled from Glasgow, Scotland's largest city, to Inverness. We went via Stirling, Perth, Pitlochry, Dalwhinnie, Kingussie and Aviemore. Highlights included a visit to Dalwhinnie Distillery, a dram of Speyside whisky and the views from Inverness Castle.
Take a walk with us around Glasgow City on New Years Day - 1 January 2019. So quiet. Very few people and cars. See the streets without the distractions. We walked from Hope Street to the Necropolis (left to right of the city centre) and from Cathedral Street to Glasgow Green and the River Clyde (top to bottom of the city centre). We found a new Billy Connolly mural as well among the beautiful street murals.
