  • New tariff at electric vehicle (EV) charging points On The North Coast 500

    The Highland Council has decided to introduce a tariff at EV charge points, starting on 1 June 2021.

    The new tariff is intended to recover costs associated with the operation and upkeep of the network, transitioning Highland Council to a more sustainable operating model.

    The number of EVs on the roads has doubled in the last year, therefore the risk in electricity supply will be upwards of those numbers without a tariff in place.

    What are the North Coast 500 Speed Limits?

    If you are planning on zooming around the NC500 like a bad thing then maybe you should realise a few things first about the speed limits on this iconic coastal route around the scottish highlands. firstly there are no motorways in the highland's and very few sections of dual carriageway, thus the whole route is nmade up of single carriageway and single track roads. The national speed limit on single carriage roads is 60mph for cars & motorcycles 50mph for Motorhomes (the average free flow speed around the route is 48mph), though there may be few occasions that you will be safe to drive at this speed. The reality is, the north coast 500 has become such a popular route in peak season that congestion has become a sad reality in such a rural setting. with sports cars, motorhomes, cyclists, walkers, hikers, campervans, daytrippers, sightseers, roadtrippers, truckers & van drivers not to mention the local people just trying to commute. (the Isle Of Skye was closed to Motorhomes for a period in 2019 due to the congestion on the island). If you are planning this nc500 route in 2020 and you do find yourself caught up in traffic don't be a fanny, remember you are part of the problem and part of the solution. Courtesy patience & manners are a must on this road so drive correctly for the conditions. You don't want to end up In Fanny Bay! Do You?
